The tomato is a plant in the Solanaceae or nightshade family, native to Central and South America. It is perennial, but is often cultivated as an annual, typically growing to 1€"3 m in height, with a weak, woody stem that usually scrambles over other plants. The genus Solanum also contains the eggplant and the potato, as well as many poisonous species. The leaves are 10€"25 cm long, pinnate, with 5€"9 leaflets, each leaflet up to 8 cm long, with a serrated margin; both the stem and leaves are densely glandular-hairy. The flowers are 1€"2 cm across, yellow, with five pointed lobes on the corolla, borne in a cyme . The fruit is an edible, brightly colored (usually red, from the pigment lycopene) berry, 1€"2 cm diameter in wild plants, commonly much larger in cultivated forms. The word tomato derives from a word in the Nahuatl language, tomatl. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
