Tomatoes

During colonial times, we wouldn’t put a tomato near our mouths, let alone try to eat one. Folklore had it that if you ate a tomato, its poison would turn your blood into acid!

Tomatoes include a wide variety of fruit of different sizes and tastes. Varieties include small cherry tomatoes of a variety of colours from yellow, orange and red to large beefsteak and a wide variety of heritage tomatoes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours.

 

Tomatoes are the fruit of the plant and have a high water content. They are a good source of Vitamin A and C and the photochemical Lycopene which may protect against cancers of the cervix, stomach, bladder, colon and prostate as well as cardiovascular disease.  They are a good source of dietary fibre   And low in KCalories.
