The 6th of April is Fresh Tomato Day, a day to commemorate the beauty of fresh tomatoes. Tomatoes are a significant source of umami flavour and are cultivated in both temperate and tropical regions of the globe. Typically, they are ingested raw or cooked. Numerous varieties of the tomato plant are typically grown in temperate climates throughout the globe, with purpose-built greenhouses assisting in the production of tomatoes throughout the year. Tomato plants are typically three to ten feet tall, with tendrils and a weak, sprawling stem.

The background of Fresh Tomato Day

The tomato is believed to have descended or evolved from the native to western South America Solanum pimpinellifolium, also known as the currant tomato or wild tomato. These untamed tomatoes were typically about the size of peas and were smaller than the tomatoes we have today. The so-called domestication of tomatoes can be traced back to the Aztecs and other Mesoamericans, who consumed the fruit both raw and cooked. Tomatoes were introduced to Europe by the Spanish and became a staple in Spanish cuisine. In northern European countries such as France, Italy, and others, the tomato was initially cultivated as an ornamental plant, similar to flowers.

Botanists viewed the tomato with scepticism as a culinary item because they believed it to be a nightshade. This scepticism and suspicion was exacerbated by the tomato juice’s acidity. Tomatoes were referred to as “poison apples” because it was believed that eating them caused aristocrats to become ill and perish. The wealthy Europeans of the time may have used lead-rich pewter plates, and because tomatoes are so acidic, the fruit leached lead from the plate when it came into contact with the fruit, causing lead poisoning and death.

At the time, ignorance prevented anyone from connecting the links between the plate and the poison, so the simplest solution was to blame the tomato. Tomato leaves and immature fruit contain tomatin, which could be toxic in large quantities. However, mature tomato fruit is devoid of tomatin.
