Nowadays Tomatoe is the king of vegetables.

Tomatoes come from Central America, specifically Mexico and Peru.

At the beginning tomatoes were not seen positively, but after being appreciated by the Sun King of France, from the 15th century the alchemists began to attribute their aphrodisiac characteristics and used them for potions and magic filters.

In 1596 Tomatoes arrived for the first time in northern Italy, used as an ornamental plant, two decades later reached the south of Italy, where the favorable climate brought bigger fruits and reds, inviting the farmers to consume them: raw or cooked, in sauce or fried in oil,  or in the soups. With the famines of XVII and XVIII centuries, when grain began to fail, the rich Italian gentlemen were forced to eat tomatoes. From that moment Tomatoe became a typical Italian food product.
