Tomato Cultivation in Mexico

Cultivation of the mighty Tomato started in Mexico and not Italy as some would expect (as they make spigettie sauce). It started in the 12th or 13th century with the Aztecs. The word “Tomato” is derived from the aztec word “Tomatl”. Finally some food for thought, the Andean Region of South America is where wild tomatoes are native.
