What are large cherry tomatoes called?
3. Roma tomatoes. Roma tomatoes are larger than cherry and grape tomatoes but not large enough to be used for slicing. Romas are also known as plum tomatoes.
Why are my cherry tomatoes so big?

Are there different sizes of cherry tomatoes?

Are Campari tomatoes the same as cherry tomatoes?
Campari tomatoes are classified as a cocktail tomato, slightly bigger than a cherry tomato but smaller and rounder than a plum tomato. They are deep red in color, redder than most store-bought tomatoes, because they are grown hydroponically and ripened on the vine, which also eliminates the need for pesticides.
