Slowly but surely our tomatoes are coming in. We have a beautiful array of heirloom tomatoes (purple Cherokee, pineapple bi-color and yellow brandywine), red and yellow slicers and a flood of cherry tomatoes. Tomatoes originated in Central America where they were named “tomatl” by the Aztec, Nahuatl language. When the Spanish came to Central America they quickly became enamored with the fruit and brought it back to Europe. From there, the popularity grew, especially in Italy where the name for tomato became “pomodoro” or “golden apple.” Tomatoes are a global treasure. With every juicy bite, it’s easy to appreciate the entirety of the season as well as the history of the seed.
