Announcing Event In my VEG BOX~TOMATOES


The tomato plant originated in South America and was domesticated by the Incas as early as 700 A.D. It is now the most commonly grown "vegetable". although most people call it a vegetable tomato is actually classified as a fruit. Tomatoes are a valuable source of food minerals and vitamins, particularly vitamins A and C. Research has shown that people who eat large amounts of tomatoes or tomato products may be at lower risk of some kinds of cancer.

There are many types of tomatoes such as cherry tomatoes, plum tomatoes, beef tomatoes and standard tomatoes. Tomatoes come in a range of colours from deep reds through orange to bright yellow with some rarer varieties being striped, green when ripe and very dark.

Tomatoes are very versatile, they can be eaten raw in salads, salsas, cold soups, chutneys and juices and also used in a variety of dishes of cooked dishes such as soups, curries, sauces and condiments.
