FUN FACTS

Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A

Red tomatoes have lycopene, which is the pigment that gives them their color. Research suggests that a lycopene- rich diet may help lower the risk of certain cancers.

The Lycopene found in canned tomatoes, ketchup, and tomato sauce is more easily absorbed in the body than that found in raw tomatoes

According to Guinness World Records, the most tomatoes harvested from one plant in one year was over 32,000 from a plant from Walt Disney World.
