A tomato is a fruit that comes from a plant in the nightshade family. Tomatoes are usually red, yellow, or orange and have a sweet flavor.
Tomatoes can be eaten raw or cooked. They are used for cooking sauces, stuffed with cheese, on top of pizzas, or cut up for salads. Tomatoes can also be preserved by canning or pickling.
Tomatoes grow in most climates, but the plant will start to die when the temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius). The largest tomato ever grown was 19 pounds 10 ounces, back in 1998.
A new Guinness World Record has been set by a family-owned farm in California. The largest tomato ever grown on a single vine is 2,363 pounds, and it was from the world’s biggest tomato plant. George Nader owns this massive fruit-producing company with his wife Maryam and their three sons, who have been growing vegetables for over 50 years. They use sustainable farming practices to grow all of their products without using any pesticides or GMOs. In addition to these giant tomatoes, they also have some other unusual crops, such as sweet peppers that weigh up to 10 pounds each!
It is reported that Maryam Nader is growing some smaller tomatoes in her kitchen to make ketchup. This new world record will be verified by Guinness World Records.
“We are very excited about this achievement,” said George Nader, who has been working on the farm since he was 10 years old. “It’s always nice when you can be the first to do anything.”
