Okay, so... someone on our local list made the famous "tomatoes are TOO

period because they were eaten in Italy and Spain in the 16th century" and

(of course) didn't back it up with cites. But because they are a respected

source of clothing information, it is swinging the whole group over to think

the durned things are 'just fine' for SCA *demos*!


So since I don't pay any attention to tomatoes, I didn't save any

information about them and their introduction to Europe. Does anyone have

any quick & easy cites they'd be willing to share? I don't want to put

anyone to any trouble but if you happen to have info easily to hand, I'd

love to pass it on before we end up eating corn-on-the-cob at an educational
