The Golden And Love Apple : Tomato

Types

So you thought that tomatoes are all the same, well time to think again!

Common tomatoes - Roundish, flat topped with pink to red flesh

Egg tomatoes - Normally red with a firmer skin and sweet juicy flesh.

Cocktail tomatoes - Red or yellow sold as cherry or tear drop tomatoes depending on their shape.

Tomato for thought!

Lycopene offers a greater protection against heart diseases and cancer than beta-carotene.

100 gms sun dried tomatoes supply 100 mg calcium - 13 times as supplied by fresh tomatoes.

Beware - Too much of tomato consumption can be a cause of kidney or gall bladed stones. So keep a check!
