    Tomatoes are actually fruits and not vegetables. A fruit is the edible Share of the plant that contains the seeds, while a vegetable is the edible stems, leaves, and roots of the plant.


    Tomatoes first grew as wild cherry sized fruits in the South Amedican Andes. They were grown by the Aztecs and the Incas as far back as 700 AD. But the tomato, as we know it today, originates from Mexico. Explorers coming back from Mexico introduced tomatoes to Europe in the mid 1500's.
