Two tomato plants in one container

I transplanted two cherry tomato plants into a larger pot (the original pot had two plants in it) but now they seem a bit squished. Is it too late to separate them? They are doing well otherwise.

Thanks. That's what I figured. Hopefully they'll still be okay.

Are they sweet, tomatoes? Few year ago, i used to grow cherry tomatoes. My father in-law took out and kept the seeds from the current year, planted in April next year. He gave me to grow. I put like 6/7 plants in really big pot. My kids used like them, not anymore since they ate too much every year.

God, I love cherry tomatoes. They're so much more flavourful than large tomatoes. Anyway, we grow them in the ground as tomato vines grow to three or four feet by the end of the season. Even in our garden, the tomatoes look quite crowded by September.

I love cherry tomatoes too! But aren't there numerous varieties that differ in how "sweet" they are (among other characteristics)? I just picked this out from Home Depot. No idea how it will actually taste.
