@Carlahna When cherry tomatoes were first marketed, Israeli researchers probably tested various names on control groups. When marketers are trying to settle on a name, they want what sells, not what is linguistically accurate.
Sheri may have been chosen because of its similarity to sheli. The li in bissli for example is from לי “my” in Hebrew.
I'm wondering if the name came after they were perfected in Israel. https://www.myjewishlearning.com/the-nosher/cherry-tomatoes-have-surprising-israeli-roots/
