These juicy red fruits are at peak season right now and come in so many varieties. You can find them in a broad selection of colors, sizes, shapes, and flavors to fit any recipe from cold gazpacho soup to dazzling salads. They make great toppings and garnish or stand alone on their own with a little oil, vinegar, and spices.
Tomatoes are part of the nightshade family, which also includes potatoes, peppers and eggplants. While the U.S. Supreme Court declared them a vegetable in 1893, tomatoes are technically a fruit since they grow on a vine. Their prime season is May through October, with some minor variations depending on the location and growing season.
In Season and Sensational
While tomatoes are quite tasty and make wonderful fresh recipes, cooked and prepared tomatoes make excellent sauces and stews. Canned tomatoes (as opposed to fresh) are an excellent source of the antioxidant lycopene, shown to help lower the risk of heart disease, prostate cancer and macular degeneration (poor eyesight as you get older).
