Tomatoes, a paradox. Deadly nightshade or symbol of love? Is it a fruit or a vegetable? (It’s a fruit). Yet, the debate rages on. (It doesn’t). Europeans were suspicious of the bright fruit introduced from the heathen west and considered it poisonous, creating associations with witchcraft and werewolfery. In reality, the tomato is pulsing with vitamins and nourishing life energy, both almost palpable when you pluck one ripe from a fragrant summer stalk. The tomato reminds us to embrace the inherent ambiguity and polarizing forces of life. Wear the tomato charm for balance and to express your dual nature.
