Tomatoes and TPE have a long history together. As our first category item in 1979, tomatoes have grown both in variety and quality and continue to be an important part of our mission.


The Apple of Love

The tomato is the world's most popular fruit. And yes, just like the eggplant and the pumpkin, botanically speaking it is a fruit, not a vegetable. More than 60 million tons of tomatoes are produced per year, 16 million tons more than the second most popular fruit, the banana.

Less than thirty years ago, the zucchini, formerly often referred to as green Italian squash, was hardly recognized in the United States. Today, it is not only widely-recognized, but a particular favorite of home gardeners. Notwithstanding its prolific growing nature, its popularity is probably due to in large part to its versatility as a vegetable as well as in breads and desserts.

Zucchini can be cooked by a variety of methods including steaming, grilling, sautéing, deep-frying and baking.
