Tomato

What is Tomato?

Tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum), although biologically fruits, are considered vegetables among chefs because of their low sugar content. Most tomato cultivars (of which there are many) have a tangy, acidic taste with a gelatinous center. Nearly all unripened tomatoes are green then turn red when ripe.

Tomato Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Tomato Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
