Toe-may-toe or Toe-mah-toe?

Who cares? But Fruit or vegetable that is the real question.
Tomatoes are, in fact, fruits because they form from a flower and contain seeds. Still, they’re most often utilized like a vegetable in cooking. The US Supreme Court ruled in 1893 that the tomato should be classified as a vegetable-based on its culinary applications. So, if you are talking to a chef, they are a vegetable.

The wild species originated in Western South America, probably mainly in Peru and Ecuador. The name is derived from the Náhuatl (Aztec) word tomatl. The Spanish introduced the tomato to Europe in the early 16th century, and the Spanish and Italians seem to have been the first Europeans to adopt it as a food.

Tomatoes were later brought to North America from Europe. Thomas Jefferson is known to have raised them at Monticello in 1781. The tomato was used for food in Louisiana as early as 1812, but not in the northeastern states until about 1835.

Best local and at room temperature.

The sooner you eat a ripe tomato after it's been picked, the better it will taste, so it is best to buy them locally farmed. Also, storing tomatoes in the refrigerator will reduce their flavor; therefore, keep them stored at room temperature for maximum taste.
