Tomatoes are a very peculiar fruit: everybody thinks it’s a vegetable, but it’s really a fruit, and more precisely a berry! In botanical terms a fruit consists of the ovary of the plant, with its seeds, and that’s exactly what a tomato is. Its family, the Solanaceae, is also called the nightshade family, and includes other famous plants such as tobacco, potatoes, eggplants, chilli peppers, and the poisonous belladonna.
There is a ton of great information available to help you be successful in sowing, growing and harvesting tomatoes. I do my best to post articles when I sow, grow and harvest tomatoes myself. You can find those articles here.
