Tomatoes

Tomatoes

In Season: From different areas, tomatoes are fresh nearly all year long Although the tomato is a fruit, botanically speaking, the United States Supreme Court ruled it a vegetable in 1893. The reason for such an ordeal was taxes. Fruits were not subject to import taxes at the time, and foreign countries could flood the market with lower priced produce. When choosing a tomato, look for deep red color and characteristic smell. Be sure not to store tomatoes in the refrigerator! Besides losing their nutritional value, they will also lose their flavor.
