Green when fully ripe, this medium to large tomato has firm meat with a distinctive tomato flavor. The taste is somewhat tart and mildly acidic. Some green heirloom tomatoes are basically immature red tomatoes. This variety of tomato cannot be eaten raw.
An excellent source of vitamins A and C, tomatoes are low in calories, cholesterol-free, contain potassium and provide folate and fiber. Tomatoes are noted for containing the antioxidant compound lycopene, which may help protect against prostate cancer and heart disease.

In France, around the time that the myth was dispelled that tomatoes were poisonous, people began to believe that the tomato was an aphrodisiac and called it "pomme d'amour" or "love apple." Tomatoes are among the most common plants grown in home gardens.
Tomatoes are native to the Andes region of Chile, Colombia, Bolivia, and Peru, but are believed to have been domesticated in Mexico. It was in the early 1500s when tomatoes were introduced to Europe by returning Spanish colonists. Botanically, the tomato is a fruit; however in 1883, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the tomato was legally a vegetable due to common usage. Fried tomatoes gained their popularity and were first served at the Irondale Cafe just east of Birmingham, Alabama.
