Tomatoes are said to be the most widely used vegetable in the world. Tomatoes originated from the Andean Cordillera between Chile and Equador. The Incas were the earliest cultivators of this vegetable.
Tomatoes are rich in minerals and trace elements. Potassium predominates over all and helps our body to regain water balance therefore reducing water retention and fatigue. They also contain phosphorus, calcium, iron, zinc, selenium and fiber, a true elixir of health. With this knowledge it is worth it to grow tomatoes!
