Eaten all over the world, tomatoes are highly prized by gardeners who are constantly experimenting with new varieties. Contrary to popular belief tomatoes are actually fruits, not vegetables due to their seed content. But, tomatoes are not restricted to cooking alone - they have also found their place in the cultural arena. The annual tomato-fight festival - "La Tomatina"- in Bunol, Spain is a major tourist delight. A century ago angry theater-goers started the trend of hurling rotten tomatoes at awful performers!
