These are the smallest tomatoes I have come across.

About two dozen baby tomatoes could fit in a cup. Saw these at Rustan's and immediately used them for my salad.

If you still don't believe me that these babies are small, look. One tomato is as small as a ten centavo coin!
To check if these tomatoes were reallr organically grown, I Googled Zacky's farm, the produce grower, and found out that they don't have a website or a Facebook page. Saw a blog and several articles about the farm though and found out that the 13-hectare organic farm,  located in Barangay Marawoy, Lipa City Batangas, is a business managed by a mechanical engineer who used to work in one of the top food corporations in the country. 
The articles tomatoes were grown without the use of pesticides and using only fermented plant juice compost to give the plants the minerals and nutrients. 

Wish they'd make a website to enlighten and encourage more people to buy organically grown local produce.
