The tomato is native to South America and Central America. Several varieties were already cultivated by the Incas long before the arrival of the Conquistadors. We are always surprised by the abundance of tomato varieties. The term "tomato" comes from the Incas "Tomatl" and designates both the plant and the fruit from the plant. There are fruits of all colors (red, of course, but also green, yellow and even some very rare varieties, blue), of all shapes and sizes. Old varieties are indeterminate plants and can live for two years. Newer varieties are said to be determinate in growth and stop growing at the bush stage so there is no need to stake or trellis them.
