Tomatoes are plants that are widely used for food. Tomatoes originate on Earth, although they have been known to be cultivated in otherworldly varieties. Although commonly prepared as some type of tomato sauce, other preparations are also notable. While tomatoes are technically calssified as a fruit, for the purposes of cooking they are vegetable matter. Tomatoes are distantly related to potato roots and tobacco leaves.

Lore teased Data for their differences in speaking (One says "can't" or "isn't". While the other says "cannot" or "is not".) by reciting, "I say tomato/And you say tumahtoe/I say potato/And you say putahtoe". (TNG episode: "Datalore")

Stewed tomatoes and dehydrated eggs were a component of a Starfleet ration pack that was Marla McGivers's first meal on Ceti Alpha V. (TOS novel: To Reign in Hell: The Exile of Khan Noonien Singh)

In the VOY episode: "Phage", the combination of stewed tomatoes and dehydrated eggs in a ration pack was called "ration pack 5".

In the early 2370s, Ro Laren grew tomatoes and other red fruits in a small vegetable patch at her home on Galion. (TNG - The Dominion War novel: Behind Enemy Lines)

The tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) is a plant belonging to the family Solanaceae (nightshade family). It is related to the potato and the eggplant. While technically a fruit, the tomato is commonly considered a vegetable because of its uses.

Contents

History

Although the tomato was cultivated in Mexico and Peru for centuries before the European conquest, it is one of the newest plants to be used on a large scale for human food. The name of the tomato comes from the Nahuatl language which was spoken by the Aztecs and other groups in Central America. The Spanish explorers brought back the tomato seed from South America to use it purely for ornamentation puroposes, referring to the tomato as the "love apple." This is probably because of the fact that the tomato was commonly viewed as poisonous. This view has some basis in reality as the fruit of the tomato is the only part of the plant that isn't toxic. It is only in the past century that the tomato has become recognized as a valuable food.

Tomatoes have been used in salads as early as the 1600s. In the 1800s, the tomato was reintroduced as a food plant and now ranks third amongst US vegetable crops. While the tomato is still used as a salad vegetable, three quarters of tomatoes are processed into juice, canned tomato products, soups, catsup and tomato pastes. In Italy, tomato seed oil is extracted from the seeds left over from the canning process. The tomato is also used to create the anti-biotic tomatine. Currently, tomatoes are one of the most popular vegetables eaten by Americans.

Varieties

Tomate

There are numerous varieties of tomato, ranging from the large beefsteak tomato to the very small cherry tomato. The most widely available varieties are classified in three groups: cherry, plum, and slicing tomatoes. Tomato shapes vary from spherical to elongate; sizes range from 0.6 inches across to more than 3 inches across. In recent years, heirloom tomatoes have become trendy in cooking and gardening. A new sweet variety like the cherry tomato is the grape tomato, which is really wonderful to eat alone or in a salad.

Selection

Cold temperatures damage tomatoes, so never buy tomatoes that are stored in a cold area. Choose plump tomatoes with smooth skins that are free from bruises, cracks, or blemishes. Depending on the variety, ripe tomatoes should be completely red or reddish-orange.

Storage

Store tomatoes at room temperature (above 55 degrees) until they have fully ripened. This will allow them to ripen properly and develop good flavor and aroma. Try to store tomatoes out of direct sunlight, because sunlight will cause them to ripen unevenly. If you must store them for a longer period of time, place them in the refrigerator. Serve them at room temperature. Chopped tomatoes can be frozen for use in sauces or other cooked dishes.

Cooking with Tomatoes

To remove the skin off of a tomato, submerge a tomato a pot of boiling water for about a minute. Use a slotted spoon to remove the tomato from the pot. Let the tomato cool, then peel the skin off.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A detailed image of a tomato.

A tomato is a food item that heals 2 Hitpoints when eaten[1]. Its main use is as an ingredient in other foods; tomatoes are needed to make garden pies[2], vegetable battas and cheese and tomato battas[3], and egg and tomato (used as the topping for egg potatoes[4]), as well as ugthanki kebabs and all pizzas[5].

Players can store five tomatoes in a basket[6]. One basket of tomatoes is required to pay a gardener to watch over growing yanillian hops or a growing oak tree, and three baskets of tomatoes are required to pay them to watch over a growing cadava berry bush[7].

Players can use tomatoes in a Compost Bin to make compost[8]. However, using only 15 tomatoes in a batch turns them into rotten tomatoes instead.

Contents

Obtaining tomatoes

Players can grow tomatoes by planting three tomato seeds in an allotment patch at level 12 Farming[9]. They can plant a marigold seed in the flower patch to help protect the tomatoes from disease[8], or pay the gardener two sacks of cabbages to ensure they grow[7].

A tomato spawns in the Bandit Camp in the Wilderness, on a stool near the fairy ring in the Feldip Hills Jungle Hunter area and in Aggie's house in Draynor Village[10]. In issue 1 of Postbag from the Hedge (dated 26 September 2005), Aggie claims to have created the tomato accidentally whilst trying to summon a lesser demon[11]. It is unclear whether she is referring to the particular tomato in her house (explaining why it keeps reappearing), or is claiming to be the origin of all tomatoes. In any case, her claims cannot necessarily be taken too seriously, as she also says that tomatoes "do sometimes bite"; there is no evidence of this in the game. Tomatoes can also be bought from Wydin's Food Store in Port Sarim

After completing the Fremennik Trials quest, members with level 2 Thieving can steal tomatoes from the vegetable stalls on Miscellania and Etceteria[12], or simply buy them from the greengrocer there. They can also buy tomatoes from the food shop in Port Sarim, or (depending on their progress in the Recipe for Disaster quest) from the Culinaromancer's Chest in Lumbridge Castle.

Players can purchase tomatoes at the Farming shops after another player has sold there, but this is rare since those shops cycle their player stocks rather quickly. Note that since the Grand Exchange update, the Farming shops sell tomatoes at GE prices (when they have tomatoes) but will pay players only a starting payment of 9 coins for a tomato, assuming the store has no tomatoes in inventory - the payment per tomato goes down gradually as the inventory increases.

Players can also gain tomatoes by talking to the Recruiter in West Ardougne; the nearby men will throw tomatoes at him, and players can pick these up from the ground. This is a very slow method for obtaining tomatoes though, and other methods are greatly preferred.[13].

Trivia

  • It is interesting to note that the examine text says, "This would make good ketchup". There is no such thing as ketchup in RuneScape.
