Tomatoes

Tomato is the edible, often red berry type fruit of a tomato plant. The tomato is consumed in diverse ways, including raw, as an ingredient in many dishes, sauces, salads, and drinks. A favorite is the chutney, which involves laborious (and sometimes messy) cooking process, but the outcome is worth it.

The English word tomato comes from the Spanish word, tomate, derived from the Nahuatl (Aztec language) word tomatl.

Use of tomato as a food originated in Mexico, and spread throughout the world thereafter. Its many varieties are now widely grown, sometimes in greenhouses in cooler climates.

The plants typically grow to 1–3 meters (3–10 ft) in height and have a weak stem that often sprawls over the ground and vines over other plants. Often grown outdoors in temperate climates. Him and Her devised a system of stakes and intertwined threads together as a support for the plants as they grew taller.
