Tomato is technically defined as a fruit, but is clearly a vegetable. It comes in many varieties, but is generally red. Many people claim that tomatoes have ‘changed’ throughout the years, though this claim is impossible to verify as a) the critic has ‘changed’ as well, and b) it is currently impossible to gather a ‘classic tomato’ for testing.
Tomato tastes good, but is rarely eaten alone. It’s primary function is to create tomato sauce for Italian dishes, such as spaghetti.
Tomato became an official snack on April 21st 2012.
