The tomato is the fruit of the tomato plant of American origin. Specifically, it is considered native of Ecuador, Peru and northern Chile. Its introduction to Europe came from Mexico. At first, the acceptance of tomato in Europe was very low because it related to some species of poisonous plants. As this idea was diminishing, tomato consumption began to grow until it became very popular in the eighteenth century, a period which saw the emergence of ketchup. It was not until the twentieth century that its cultivation spread throughout the world. At present, the tomato is one of the most popular foods in Europe, partly owing to its versatility and ease to combine well with a wide variety of foods and herbs.

Dan­Ronc: representative variety of tomato salad, very full and fleshy.

THE BEST TIME Although we can find tomatoes all year round, the best quality, especially for salads, are harvested in the summer months. Its nutritional value and fragrance are higher when the tomato ripens in the sun in the countryside, from August to October. Like peppers and eggplants, with whom they share the same botanical family, tomatoes are better at withstanding high temperatures and are more sensitive to cold.

Shape: differs depending on the variety (spherical, elongated, pear ...), although most are quite round.
Size and weight: varies from 3 centimeters such as the cherry tomato or they can measure up to 10 centimeters such as the salad tomato. The latter may weigh between 80 and 300 grams.
