The Tomato The Garden Variety

Updated on March 29, 2013

Is it A fruit or a vegetable



I grew up on a farm in the South where Gardening was essential to all farmers and their families. One of the most amazing vegetable was the tomato, because of the royal red color. Researcher have done studies linking tomatoes to some medical cures. Tomatoes is known for a lot of lycopene contents. The Lycopene is a vital anti-oxidant in tomatoes helps fight against some cancerous cells information's as well as some other diseases.Tomatoes are rich in vitamins and antioxidants with the seeds high in fiber. Tomatoes are tasty and can be used in making many dishes. Planting tomatoes starts with a decent location, preparing the soil in a area where there is a lot of sun light. A lot of people grows tomatoes in gardens or hanging pots because they are so easy to grow, and will basically grow anywhere. Nothing is more appealing than home grown tomatoes, no other vegetable has as much versatility as the tomatoes'. I have never forgotten the years of hard work, spend on my father farms; learning how to plant and grow beautiful vegetables. You have never experience the beautiful of tomatoes until you stand in a field with thousands of juicy red tomatoes, hanging on vines just waiting to be picked.

      Tomatoes are easy to grow and will grow basically any where, if probably cared for.
