Tomatoes are a powerhouse of nutritional benefits. Most notably, they have high levels of the very powerful antioxidant, lycopene. Tomatoes also provide strong amounts of Vitamin C and beta-carotene as well as an array of phytonutrients. Today, there are over 7,500 different varieties of tomatoes in existence! They can be broken down into categories mostly based off their size and shape. Slicing tomatoes (also known as globe tomatoes) are those most widely produced for commercial use. Beefsteak tomatoes are the variety typically sliced for sandwiches or burgers.
