Tomatoes: sex, death, and cigarettes

NPR has a wonderful short piece on tomatoes at My favorite quote:

The enigmatic tomato belongs to the same family as tobacco and the toxic, deadly nightshade, but that just adds to its glamour. Sex, death and cigarettes: Eden's forbidden fruit should have been a tomato.

And they mention a tomato-wrestling contest. Fabulous!
