Tomato
“Pomodoro…” the golden apple!

No name would be more befitting for this treasure of a fruit, native of the north-western part of South America.

It was introduced into Europe in the 16th century, specifically to Italy and Spain. Although initially the tomato was grown as an ornamental plant, ultimately it was grown and valued for its fruit during the 17th century.

Tomato is the most widely used culinary ingredient in the world after the potato!
