Cherry tomatoes with very tough skin

in Fruit & veg
I have Tumbling Tom, Hundreds &Thousands and Sweet Million and they all have inedibly tough skin. I am wondering if there are any solutions to this. They are watered every day and not allowed to dry out. They get a lot of sun and are fed. Currently you have to spit the skin out, so I don't really like to offer them to neighbours and friends. It all feels rather disappointing.
Any thoughts to address this downside are welcome.

The only trouble is, they have fruited and now many lf the plants are finished. Very early and not a great crop.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
I was very sceptical of the necessity of this at first, given my area is nearly in the Pyrenees, thinking, isnt that total overkill?! Well these guys have been growing veg on their huertos for generations. Have bought the shade netting and building a frame to sling it over is on my list for next season
