The invention discloses a differential belt type tomato harvesting and separating device and a tomato harvesting machine formed by the differential belt type tomato harvesting and separating device. The differential belt type tomato harvesting and separating device comprises a plurality of parallel endless belts or chains; the outer edge of each endless belt or chain is provided with an upright fingerlike gear rod; the parallel endless belts or chains are divided into at least two groups alternatively; and the two groups of parallel endless belts or chains are provided with different main driving wheels, main driving wheel axles and driving mechanisms. The differential belt type tomato harvesting and separating device can be also applied to the machinery for harvesting potatoes, tomatoes, peanuts and other similar crops to separate the fruits from the seedlings and harvest the fruits. Compared with the prior art, the differential belt type tomato harvesting and separating device has a simple structure and a good separation effect, can work at low vibrating frequency and particularly can slightly tear through the relative displacement of adjacent endless belts or chains with lower degree of damaging the tomato fruits.
