Weight Equivalents: Tomato

Tomatoes originated from the Andes, in what is now called Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Ecuador.
They were cultivated by the Aztecs and Incas, and were spread to Europe by the Spanish.

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene (an antioxidant that is good for the heart and effective against certain cancers), vitamins A and C, calcium, and potassium.
