A friend from some time ago had a genuine phobia of tomatoes (and balloons).  Personally, I think tomatoes are nasty things best suited for throwing at whomever is in the stocks.
I would prefer rocks. :fury:
would you prefer rocks for eating?
Rock cakes, yum yum yum.

No hate against the tomato loves out there but I legiitimately gross out when there is a tomato near me. Every product that they make from tomato just hurts on both the eyes and the smell. The taste is the worst of them all as they are horrible when it comes to the tomato. I hope that there are changes in the future for meals that have surprise tomato out there because I legitimately get disgusted by it lol. The only thing that I can tolerate is probably pizza but the taste is overpowered by the cheese and other toppings on the pizza itself.

I eat cherry tomatoes almost every day during the winter but in the summer I prefer the large ones that are grown in the countryside nearby.

As far as I'm concerned, David Lee Roth missed Tomatos as an essential food group.

It's sugar, starch, fat, grease, alcohol AND tomatos.

Pro tomato, especially cherry tomatoes! I'm ordering seeds this week to start this year's plants.

I finally got tired of tomato stakes, baskets, trellises etc all failing on me. Last spring I bought 6 foot lengths of rebar to tie them up with. It worked really well, although before the plants were in the neighbors kept asking me what I was trying to grow. :P :P

Methinks the greater part of hate for tomatoes is attributed to the "old wives tale", dating back to the Middle Ages, asserting that raw tomatoes were highly poisonous.

My latest big use tomato product is concentrated tomato paste in a tube.  Since I no longer cook large amounts of a dish such as a big pot of chili or spaghetti sauce, opening and then storing even the smallest can of tomato paste turns out to be very wasteful.  The paste in a tube works just fine.
