Garden Fresh Tomatoes & Salsa

Garedn Fresh Tomatoes and Salsa

Did you know that a tomato is actually a fruit. Then why is it referenced as a vegetable and sold as such in the produce section of your local market?

The U.S. Congress passed the Tariff Act of 1883 which levied a 10% duty on imported vegetables to protect American growers from foreign competition.

This same year they declared the tomato a vegetable, so it could be included in the tariff, and from that time on the fruit was converted to a vegetable.
