It’s the age old debate: is a tomato a vegetable or a fruit?
Botanically speaking, a tomato has seeds which make it a fruit, just as other foods we think of as veggies are fruits too, including avocados and cucumbers.
Tomatoes are just as nutritious as they are delicious. With over 7500 varieties, they contain a powerful antioxidant called Lycopene and help with Vitamin C intake. Tomatoes are in peak season in August so check out your local market or grocery store for the perfect snack, salad, or sandwich topper. Our favorite is the Heirloom variety.
