Harvest of the Month – Tomatoes

The tomato is the edible, red fruit, commonly known as a tomato plant. Numerous varieties of tomato are widely grown in temperate climates across the world, with greenhouses allowing its production throughout the year and in cooler areas. Its use as a food originated in Mexico, and spread throughout the world. Tomato is consumed in many ways, including raw, as an ingredient in many dishes, sauces, salads, and drinks. While tomatoes are fruits, they are considered culinary vegetables, being ingredients of savory meals.
