The official name of the tomato plant is the Solanum lycopersicum and it belongs to the nightshades family, Solanaceae. The species originated in South America and spread over the world after the European colonization of the Americas in the 16th century. The name tomato is derived from Aztec name for the fruit: tomatl. The tomato has a prominant place in the kitchen and can be used in various ways, from an ingredient for saw but it can also be eaten raw.
