In 6th grade I worked the summer on a farm picking tomatoes for $1.00 an hour ( child labor !!! ).

One afternoon I picked a tomato that looked sooo good that I took a bite out of it.   I chewed and swallowed it and then looked at the tomato.   IT WAS FULL OF WORMS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Freaked me out so bad that I totally gave up tomatoes for decades.  I can now eat them but only in a salad, on a burger, etc.   I still cannot eat a slice of tomato on its own.

  Love ketchup though.
And now you're full of worms!
There's nothing like biting into something full of maggots!
Since you live in Asia, I'm guessing that is something you have really done before.  :o

Once tomatoes have been processed and seasoned into a sauce or condiment, I'm ok with them. There are some worthwhile flavors within the tomato that can be extracted and imbibed into something else.

Left unadulterated, they are disgusting. One of my least favorite foodstuffs. The combination of their spongy, fleshy texture and the not-quite-sweet not-quite-savory flavor with earthy undertones is really just awful.

I've always wondered what so polarizing about tomatoes. It seems to be one of those fruits that people either really don't like or like a lot. Kind of like avocados.

I was turned onto this when I was in Italy.  Caprese salad is amazing!  It's best with fresh mozzarella, the stuff packed in water.

I like tomatoes, though I don't actually love them. And I can't stand pickles.
I'd love to travel back in time and punch the guy who thought it was a good idea to put pickles on a hamburger or sandwich.
