The Story Of Tomato

When we look at the history of humanity, we see that tomato entered our lives quite late. Tomato, whose homeland is South America, was discovered by the Aztecs in the Andes. And the “World Tour” began with the invasion of Mexico by the Spanish in the 1500s. Being carried to Southern Europe by Spanish sailors, tomato rapidly spread in the Mediterranean countries, especially in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and became a popular food. Italians described this delicious new product “Puma Amuris” , French “Pumme Damour” and Brits “Apple of Love”. The reason of the tomato's nickname being defined as “Apple of Love” or “Love Fruit”, or the Germans describe “Fruit of Heaven” must be the identification with the charm of the tomato. Towards the end of the 19th9. century, tomato became a vegetable known almost all over the world. The flavor and color it added to the dishes enabled it to be used in a variety of ways and in abundance. Is tomato the essential element of our cuisine today, a fruit? Or is it a vegetable? If you talk to a botanist, he'll tell you that tomato is a fruit, because tomato has seeds in it. But someone involved in gardening will tell you that tomatoes are vegetables and don't grow on trees like fruits. Both answers are correct: tomatoes are both fruit and vegetables!
