  Tomato Varieties 

Tomatoes are really good for you with numerous health benefits. They should be consumed regularly, primarily for the cancer-preventing benefits of lycopene. Once called the wolf peach and considered a dangerous food, this round red fruit is now renowned as one of the most potent cancer-fighting foods. The French even believed tomatoes to be an aphrodisiac, thus another common name "love apple".
