(Solanum Lycopersicum)

Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a plant of the family of Solanaceae], native to Central and South America, from Mexico to Peru. It lives only a few years and is usually grown as a one-year plant. Typically it reaches 3-3 m high, but does not have a sturdy shoot and relies on other plants. The leaves are 10-25 cm long and are composite, consisting of 5-9 smaller leaves each up to 8 cm long with a perianth periphery. Both the shoot of the plant and the leaves have hair. The flowers are 1-2 cm in diameter, are yellow with five-pointed pods and grow in groups of 3-12.

There are greenhouse tomatoes (climbing) and outdoor tomatoes (semi-climbing and self-propelled). Climbers and semi-climbers need support, which can be done either with twine (horizontal wire greenhouse) or reeds when it comes to outdoor cultivation. Self-propelled tomatoes need no support because they blind themselves to the top and do not grow upwards.

Before ripening, the tomato is green in color. In wild plants the fruit is 1-2 cm in diameter, but on most days it is larger than 5-10 cm. Tomato is ideal for salads and is the main ingredient of rustic salad.
