Tomatoes were grown as a crop in Mexico, Guatemala and Peru in pre-Columbian times but the early history of domestication is not well known (most likely in Mexico).
In Europe, tomatoes were grown as ornaments (thought to be poisonous) and became popular as a food only in the 18th century. When introduced to the United States in the early 1800s, they were known as "love apples".
