The yellow tomato.

The first tomatoes known by Europeans were probably yellow tomatoes, yellow to golden yellow color. The current Italian name derives from the color of the fruits of the first cultivated varieties that had almost certainly red, but yellow gold. They are less acidic and have a sweet, delicate flavor of red tomatoes. They are rich in beta-carotene, which helps proper growth and tissue repair. These tomatoes maintain smooth and healthy skin, protect the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, throat and lungs, thereby reducing the occurrence of infections. They also protect against pollutants, have antioxidant action, counteract night blindness and weak eyesight and help in the formation of bones and teeth. Recent studies also show that the beta-carotene reduces the risk of lung cancer. This would be the “old” kind of tomato.

Yellow tomatoes are still a curiosity and hardly reach the tables. Their cultivation, outside suitable areas where they are a typical product used in food preparation, strongly linked to the territory, it is a rarity. A penalizing the diffusion are the color different from the classical one considered indispensable, even though conjugate in many different forms between them, and the more limited production. aesthetic and technical reasons, and not linked to the flavor that all available sources provide among the best.
