 Were attributed various denominations to the new plant in various languages: in Italy “tomato”, “love apple” in English, “pomme d’amour” in French, “Libesapfel” in German. All terms that, starting from the Italian one, contain an explicit reference to love. For the sake of completeness of information I must add that some believe that the term tomato derives from a distortion of the expression “pomo dei mori”, since the tomato belongs to the Solanaceae family like the aubergine, a favorite vegetable at that time by the whole Arab world, or to the first variety of yellow fruits, then replaced by the red variety, both varieties originating from South America.
