Where does it come from?
At first, botanists had placed the tomato into the fruit category. This all changed in 1893, when the U.S. Supreme Court officially pronounced it a vegetable. Historical facts prove that the tomato came from the Aztecs around 700 A.D. Numerous varieties of tomatoes are widely grown in temperate climates. It is consumed raw, as a main ingredient in many dishes, in sauces, in salads and beverages.
