The oval variety of tomato is also called the plum tomato because of its shape and a slight variation in taste. Plum tomatoes are considered to be a bit more acidic in taste than the commonly found round variety. The plum tomato variety is obtained by cross-breeding and are often used for making sauces because of their acerbic flavor. This variety is also known as a processing tomato or paste tomato because of their dominant usage in salsas and other kinds of sauces. The popular varieties of Plum tomato in the markets are San Marzano and Roma FV. The best part about Plum Tomatoes is that they have less locules or seed compartments than their regular counterparts and hence are more fleshly in nature. Tomatoes, maybe, on account of their popularity in the region have a long association with Italy. In fact some believe that the Plum tomato variety is a result of Italian’s obsession with tomatoes. However, officially tomatoes originated in the Andes that is Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Ecuador. Aztecs and Incas have been credited with their cultivation but now the tomatoes – both plum or rounded can be found anywhere in the world.
Their popularity is much due to their tanginess as much as it is due to their nutritive values. Plum tomatoes are extremely rich in Vitamin C, folate, antioxidants (lycopene being the most abundant), and low in cholesterol, fat, and unwanted calories. Including tomatoes in your diet can help maintain the body’s defense against cancer, strokes, and high blood pressure.
