The versatile TOMATO.This fruit is believed to have originated in Europe and migrated to South America. Cultivated by the Incas and the Aztecs in about 700 AD, its use spread throughout Mexico and the Andes Mountains of Peru. Its seeds were likely re-introduced to Europe in or about 1519 by explorer Hernandez Cortez, who carried them back to Spain.
When the tomato began its incline in popularity back in the 16th century, somehow, the rumor got started that this food would make a person "more romantic." Records exist of the tomato being used in salads. Soon, use of the fruit expanded to Portugal, France and Italy, where it was embraced and became known as many things--in Northern Europe, the devil's wolf apple; in Italy, the golden apple; and in Spain, the moor's apple. As a result of the continued belief that it could arouse passion, France deemed it a "love apple, " and the Germans, in the 1800s, an "apple of paradise."
