A tomato is an edible fruit of the nightshade family. It contains vitamin C and phytochemical lycopene. The fruits are eating raw or cooked. The tomato’s origins comes from the west side of South and Central America. It is called tomatl in the Aztec language Nahuatl. This led to the Spanish translation of tomate, which then became tomato in English.
