Everything About Tomatoes. Check it Out!

I thought we all familiar with tomato? This is kind of fruits with red color. Tomato is one of healthiest fruit. Tomato is useful as source of natural antioxidants. With interesting color, tomato also enriched with Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
Based on the history Tomato or Lyopercisum esculentum was invented in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia. In French, tomato is also well known as “Love Apple” or Pomme D’amour. Since tomatoes are believed to be able to recover impotence and increase the number of sperm and increase agility movements.

Further research by DR. John Cook Bennett from Wiloughby University, Ohio, as the first person who examine the benefits of tomatoes, in November 1834, shows that tomatoes can cure diarrhea, gall attack, indigestion and restore liver function. Tomatoes are also high in vitamin Cand vitamin A, which is useful to boost immunity. So it’s well consumed anyone from an early age. Another research has been done by Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen, Scotland, also found other benefits of tomatoes. They said that a yellow gel that covered the seeds of tomatoes to prevent blood clots that cause heart disease and stroke.

In my country there are two types of tomatoes. There are green tomato and red tomato. The best tomatoes are the red tomatoes. Red tomatoes contain vitamin C and vitamin A five times more than the green tomatoes. Ripe tomatoes also enriched with vitamins. Children should be accustomed to eat red tomatoes. This is important for healthy eyes.

Destroy free radicals

I thought we all known that the best tomato types was red tomato. In the red pigment, there’s another value. The red color in tomatoes contains more lycopene, an antioxidant substance that can destroy free radicals in the body caused by pollution, smoking, and ultraviolet rays. Recently research show that lycopene also useful in prevent cell damage that can trigger cervical cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer and pancreatic cancer. Actually we can only found this substance in tomato, but other fruits like red grapes, papaya and water melon. Especially for adults, tomatoes should be eaten every morning as much as one or two pieces. Sour taste in tomato came from citric acid content. So it can increase appetite. Sour taste of tomato is very well consumed by the women who have PMS (Pre Menstrual Syndrome).

The benefit of tomato like:


  • Good to prevent and inhibit growth of cancer cells, like prostate, cervix, breast and endometrium.

  • Eliminate fatigue and increase appetite.

  • Reduce the risk of appendicitis.

  • Eliminate acne.

  • Slowing the decline of eyes function, because the influence of age (age-related macular degeneration).

  • Helps reduce the risk of heart problems.

  • Helps maintain healthy liver, kidney, and prevent bowel problems.

  • Good in treating diarrhea.

  • Increase the number of sperm.

What can we do with tomato?

Although felt a little sour, but tomatoes also good to increase our appetite. That’s why tomato usually used for juice, soup, pasta, salad, sauce, baked parmesan tomatoes, etc.

Tomatoes Festival (La Tomatina)

I’ll take you tour in amazing festival at beautiful country. If you vegetarian and you liked fruits, I thought you will interest with this festival. You can also found this information from other hubbers. I thought this festival related with this topic. If we get bored with juice, pasta, sauce or other food by using tomato as the main ingredients, we can try to join in this festival. We can find a lot of tomatoes. Even a tomatoes flood, we can search this from Google pictures. Where many people soak their body in tomatoes pasta, and fighting each other using a tomatoes as a weapon. It looks wild festival but really entertaining indeed.

Source

Tomato throwing Festival (La Tomatina) was first performed in 1945 and received world recognition in 1952. We can usually see this festival every year in August. After one hour finished the war, the city of Valencia looks like a blood flood. But this is not the real blood, but it came from tomatoes that have been thrown earlier. This is looks wasting the money. But as we know, most of famous festivals have a motto "money doesn't matter", because we talk about tradition. I thought the organizers have prepared this, like the cost, accommodation and the security during the festival.

For completeness of the festival, organizers have provided 150 thousand or even tons of tomatoes, performing arts (music, parades and dances) as well as fireworks show a week before the event begun. Meanwhile, on the night before the festival, the participants included women joining paella cooking contest. I heard the cost of this festival up to £ 90.000. Once the tomato festival began, every man who joining this festival must remove their shirts and the women were allowed to wear little open clothes.

Yes, my first thought was the fruit thing too, but I would never consider it a fruit personally and wow do I love tomatoes, it is in so many of my dishes and I plan to plant some this summer too, I didn't last year because people around town grow and sell them but I just couldn't find many at all. Nothing like a big slice of red tomato on a sanwich and I always once a summer allow myself bacon gravy and red ripe tomatoes on that are fantastic. Now you have gone and made everyone hungry Pras...great hub!

Regarding the tomato - is it a fruit or a vegetable? controversy, a tomato is technically the fruit of the tomato plant, but it is used as a vegetable in savory cooking.

Although I am not that fond of tomatoes per se, I do like pizza and spaghetti which are made with tomato sauce. So I am a sort of tomato-lover. Thanks for the interesting facts, pras, and the wild tomato festival photos.

Pras, I enjoyed this very much, I voted you up on every button. As usual, my nephew you have picked a grand topic, it seems that I saw this tomato festival when I had television, it looks like more fun than "running with bulls" safer too! I have planted early this year and two plants of cherry tomatoes much smaller but I like them cold from the refrigerated bowl they are good to eat like candy. I eat a lot of tomato products and love Ice cold tomato juice blended with habenaro peppers that make it spicey, in the summer it seems to quench mt thirst faster than a gallon of water. So much to say I'll stop here. Great topic and writing I always enjoy, thank you! Much peace and love, dusty

My lovely uncle, Dusty (50 caliber). You made my day so special because your coming. Thanks for share your experience with tomatoes as the main ingredients. Tomato juice blended with habenaro peppers was new recipes for me. But I thought habenaro peppers is quite strange for me and I never about this before. I can imagine how you drink your tomato juice during the hot day. I thought you spent much more one gallon of water to add this in your tomatoes juice. Better add this with ice. Hmmm... Yummy. I have the same idea with you about tomatoes festival. It's more secure than "running with bulls". Thanks for remind me about this festival.

Tomatoes, along with potatoes, are my favorite food, prasetio30. However, I have been unable to find tomatoes that taste like tomatoes for more than a decade. The ones I get here in the New York metropolitan area taste like wax -- even those from my friends' gardens. I'm sure it's because somebody's playing with the DNA to make the tomatoes meaty so they can be shipped without damage. It's a shame.

Wow, I just love tomato's did you know that in some states here. It is still tough to get enough produce in and people go without good tomato's for awhile. I know, I'v lived in these places. Such as Alaska and even Northern parts of Eastern Oregon too.Anyway it makes you really not take for granted when you do have them, I can tell you that. Very informative HUB, and funny too. Love the tomato festival, I'v watched it on t.v. but somehow this was even more fun seeing it here.

I actually do not like tomatoes very much. I'm not sure why, just don't like them but as for the sake of health, got to start liking them. And thanks for the info.
