Hi julialaurene I like tomato very much. I like to eat more raw tomatoes.I am also happy with cooked tomatoes.We use very liberally in our daily dishes.I also like the Tomato soup very much. All fruits contain vitamins,minerals,fiber and antioxidants.You know that our body need all these to keep us healthy.The tomatoes also cotains Vitamin A Vitamin C,calcium and potassium. Do you know that there is something special in Tomatoes which is not in other fruits? Yes.It is a very rich source of "lycopene" a rare nutritional component.The lycopene is also found to some extent in watermelon and pink grape fruits. Because of this lycopene,the tomatoes help you to prevent cancers and slow the growth of tumors. The tomatoes are also used externally to rejuvenate skin. The tomatoes are available world wide.And they are also priced low . So why not everyone should start eating tomatoes either raw or cooked? Unlike other vegetables and fruits,the lycopene is found more in cooked or processed tomatoes. So enjoy your daily food with tomatoes and be healthy. Happy mylotting

I prefer ripe tomatoes for cooking. I wish I could eat them raw in salads, but the citrus makes my mouth break out into sores. I hate that.

Nope, I don't. I can't eat tomatoes raw at all. I have to eat them cooked.

Really? is that because of the tomato's seeds? So it's better to separate the seeds before to use it.
