Tomato, flowering plant of the nightshade family. It is cultivated extensively for its edible fruits with a wide range of rich flavors. Tomatoes are labelled as vegetables for nutritional purposes. It contains vitamin C and phytochemical lycopene.
This tomato plant was found in a raise bed garden in my backyard with exposure to plenty of sunlight, water, and rich soil.
Tomato plants are deep rooted and require a healthy balance of nutrients and water.
