Wolf Peaches?

Tomatoes – an interesting history: Tomatoes were once known as wolf peaches, and until around 1820, they were thought to be deadly poisonous. Over the years there has been much controversy as to whether a tomato was a fruit or a vegetable. Through most of the 1800’s, tomatoes were considered a fruit, and according to botanists, the tomato is a fruit.

On May 10, 1893, the Supreme Court of the United States set forth a ruling that legally made the tomato a vegetable. The reasoning behind this ruling was not to set the scientific record straight; it was to induce the ability to collect tax dollars. At that time, vegetables were taxable. Fruits were not.
