Young tomato plants growing indoors by a window.

The tomato is a fruit which originated in South America, and  was spread around the world when the Spanish colonised America. It belongs to the nightshade family, and is generally a perennial. In England tomatoes were not grown until the late 16th century, but  by the mid-18th century they were widely eaten in Britain.
