Once believed to have aphrodisiac powers, they were referred to as “the love apple”. Was it because they are so delicious, that one could easily woo a lover with a delicious tomato-y dish? (so delicious THAT the dish, as well as the cook, COULD BECOME irresistible). Being such a healthy food doesn’t hurt either: nothing like a vibrant shot of good health to make a person feel romantic.
They are even the right color: luscious red, like a big fat kiss! THIS kiss of deliciousness IS A GIFT from the Greatest Tomatoes from Europe to whatever you are COOKING and TO whomever you are feeding.
