I froze my cherry tomatoes?

After reading some information online I chose to freeze my extra cherry tomatoes. Now when I defrost them they just loose their juice.  Is there a proper way to freeze them or unfreeze them?  I would like to keep them whole if possible.

TIA

No.  Freezing breaks down cell walls and for some veggies it leaves them soft and mushy.  Tomatoes are one of those.  They're best to use in stews or soups now.

I know of no way to preserve tomatoes and keep them firm.

Freezing is a bad idea, You can dehydrate them and preserve them in the seal bag....Sun dried tomatoes.

Yeah...they are pretty much mush now.  They taste fine, just can't cut them up!  :)
