About Red Tomato

Tomato is widely used in distinctive ways; whether raw or cooked. Rich in antioxidants plus vitamins, it is a valuable source of umami flavour. It’s no wonder tomato is seen as the main ingredient in many dishes, salads, sauces, as well as drinks!
Botanically an edible berry, tomato belongs to the plant Solanum Lycopersicum, normally recognized as the tomato plant. It is considered to be a ‘culinary vegetable’ as it has lesser sugar contents when compared to a culinary fruit. Hence, it is usually preferred in salads or main courses instead of desserts.
The 16th century marked the arrival of tomatoes in India by the means of Portuguese travellers. For the British, this juicy vegetable began to be grown from the 18th century. Tomato was widely adopted in India due to the climatic conditions being greatly favourable; Uttarakhand being one of the top producers. Interestingly, the Bengali people identify it as ‘Biliti Begun’, which means ‘Foreign Eggplant’.

Tomato Storage

Tomatoes are best stored unwashed, away from direct sunlight, and at room temperature. Refrigeration is not recommended as this may spoil and lose their flavour permanently. Shelf life can be prolonged by keeping them stem down, as it helps avoid quick rotting. Unripe tomatoes can be stored in a paper bag until they get ripened.
It's easy to preserve these delicious tomatoes as a whole, cut pieces, sauce, or pulp in home cans. Their acidic property makes it simple to process them in a water-dip, unlike most other vegetables that need a pressure cooker. In other cases, these are also stored by drying in the sun and sold in jars or bags containing oil.

Tomato Varieties

This tomato comes in an oblong shape. Plum tomato is fleshy and has fewer seeds, hence it is specially used in food preparation.
Roma tomato has similar characteristics when compared to a cherry tomato. It is not only sweet and juicy but also has a tangy touch to it. Due to the amount of pulp being high, Roma tomato is used in sauces and purees.
The maximum diameter of the central part determines its sizing. Cherry tomatoes do not go by this specification. The tomatoes that are round and ribbed are set with a minimum size of 35 mm. While the oblong tomatoes are set at 30 mm as the minimum size.
