In 1887, U.S. tariff laws imposed a duty on vegetables, but not on fruits.

This meant the status of tomatoes become a matter of legal importance.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the case of Nix v. Hedden that tomatoes were to be considered vegetables, based on the popular definition that classifies vegetables by use, where they are usually served with dinner and not as a dessert.

However, the courts did not reclassify the tomato botanically, it is still a fruit.

Tomatoes originated in the South American Andes around the area of modern day Peru and was first used as a food by the Aztec's in Southern Mexico.

 

The Guinness World Record for most tomatoes harvested from a single plant over one year weighed 522.464 kg (1151.84 lbs) with 32,194 tomatoes harvested between May 2005 and April 2006.

The tomato plant was at the Epcot Science project at Walt Disney World Company, Florida, USA.

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that is good for the heart and effective against certain cancers.

Cooked tomatoes are actually better for you than raw ones, as more beneficial chemicals are released.

Tomatoes are also packed with vitamins A and C, calcium, potassium.
