I've always wondered about the kind of space the idea of "tomato" takes up in people's brains. Technically a berry, it is a rather ambiguous fruit. (Vegetable??) Whimsical yet grounded. I mean, would you name your bank "Tomato Bank" if it didn't sound practical? Possibly a bit of a fad at the moment, or possibly here to stay, tomato is a joyful presence everywhere, from confectionery to nabe. Viva tomato!
