TriviaThe yellow tomato of Vesuvian area is deeply connected with ancient and almost disappeared varieties of yellow tomatoes. This particular Solanaceae selection has been rediscovered under the traditional Campania geno-plasma Conservation Project. It’s a little-known fact that the first tomatoes imported from America were yellow (from which the Italian word pomo d’oro>pomodoro, golden tomato). In 1544 the Italian herbalist Pietro Andrea Mattioli referred to the yellow fruits of the tomato plant as 'mala aurea', the golden tomato, and later, in 1554, he mentioned a red variety. As a result of a deep mistrust, the new vegetable was received as an ornamental plant, because it was believed that this plant’s fruit were toxic.
