Before anyone knew the tomato was not poisonous,
no one ate it at all - it was part of the nightshade
family, and those things killed. They called them
'love apples' for whatever reason they had : I don't
know. Round and red, like a hearthstone circle.
Finally, somehow, they learned it could be eaten
and one wouldn't die. Now it's all over a pizza pie.
Just goes to show how things really do change.
