Tomato is an edible crop appearing in the game, School of Dragons and mentioned briefly in "King of Dragons, Part 2".

Description

Though technically a fruit, tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum) are one of the most common vegetables in the world. They are part of the family Solanaceae. The leaves and stems contain small amounts of toxic substances such as tomatine and solanine. However, they are dangerous only if they are eaten in large amounts.

Tomatoes originate in Mexico. However, after the colonization of America they have been spread around the world.

Function

Tomatoes are primarily used as food for humans in both franchise and real life. One School of Dragons Farm Quest implies that Night Terrors also like tomatoes.

Tomatoes have been used to produce a pink dye in reality, and this usage is touched upon in a Farm Job that asks for tomatoes to produce red paint in School of Dragons. In another Farm Job, tomatoes are asked for in conjunction with other ingredients for orange paint. A third one asks for tomatoes and other produce to make paint for Bucket.
