Both fruit and vegetable, the tomato is one of the most versatile flavoring ingredients. Many varieties of tomatoes are available in markets today including the Japanese momotaro popular in Asian cuisine.

An excellent source of vitamin C, tomatoes are low in calories, cholesterol-free, contain potassium and provide some folate and fiber. Eating five daily servings of fruits and vegetables lowers the chances of cancer. A recent study found that eating nine or ten daily servings of fruits and vegetables, combined with three servings of low-fat dairy products, were effective in lowering blood pressure.
The momotaro is especially a favorite tomato choice for Japanese and oriental dishes. Add this unusually delicious Asian tomato to stews, soups, casseroles and stir-fries for outstanding flavor, texture and color. Slices make an attractive edible garnish.
