Solanum lycopersicum, is the fancy name for the tomato plant. I have a hard time remembering Latin names myself, but there it is for reference if needed. There are two competing hypotheses of the origin of domestication of tomato, one supporting a Peruvian origin, another a Mexican origin.

That intuitive decision set the Campbell Soup Company Inc. on the road to wealth as well as further endearing the tomato’s flavor to the general public’s taste buds. After the horrendous but inevitable Spanish colonization of the Americas, the tomato plant spread to the rest of the world like an indeterminate tomato plant growing out of control.
