It’s an annual herbaceous plant belonging to the solanaceae family. The tomato plant has a climbing stem covered by pinnatisect pubescent leaves which emit a characteristic and unmistakable fragrance. Tomatoes can be considered one of the pillars of Italian cuisine. Originally from the Andes, it was first cultivated in Mexico and then imported in Europe by Spanish explorers. It remained for a long time a simple botanical curiosity and was not used in the kitchens for its hypothetical toxicity. In the eighteenth century, it began to be part of the gastronomy in Naples. It became a type of widespread consumption in Europe only in the second half of the nineteenth century and it seems that in the United States the controversies about its supposed inedibility lasted until the beginning of the twentieth century.
