Tomatoes, oranges, eggplants, lemons are the norm of the Russian language.

In the Russian literary language is regulated by the correct spelling of these words with the ending -OV: a kilo of oranges and tomatoes. Also after the word kilogram other nouns are put in the genitive case: a kilogram of lemons, pomegranates, apricots, peaches, dates. They also have an ending. -OV. In colloquial speech, very often one has to hear the use of these expressions without ending -OV, that is, in a truncated form. I think that this is explained not by ignorance of the rule of the Russian language, but simply by the desire to reduce the elements of speech. About the word eggplantwhich cited vlanavor as an example. In the "Handbook of spelling and literary editing" D.E. Rosenthal notes that a double ending is permissible in this word: a kilogram of eggplants and a kilogram of eggplants.

So, how to correctly put the noun tomato in the genitive case in the plural?

Names of masculine fruits, fruits, and vegetables ending in solid consonant (orange, eggplant, tomato, mandarin), in the form of the genitive case of the plural have endingfive oranges, a kilo of eggplants, a new year without tangerines, a salad of tomatoes.

If you are still in doubt, try with the words "persuasion, contract, traffic light," etc.
"There is absolutely no traffic light in this city!" - sounds?

But how many grams or grams, kilograms or kilograms - there are possible options, this is how you get used to it.
