World News It's All Relative Did You Know? Opinion On The Streets
The French call it “the apple of love” the Germans “the apple of paradise” - but it isn’t apples we’re talking about, it’s tomatoes! The world’s most popular FRUIT is the tomato; yes, not a vegetable but a fruit. The Aztecs and Incas first cultivated tomatoes in 700AD and since then it has become popular for various things such as ketchup, pizza and pasta.

The scientific term for the tomato is actually lycopersicon lycopersicum and new research has proved that the stuff that makes tomatoes red, called lycopene (similar to its term) can prevent cancer. It’s no wonder why it’s the number one fruit!
