Tomatoes are members of the nightshade family, related to potatoes, bell peppers, and eggplant. They can be red, pink, orange, or yellow, round to oblong, and from 1 to 6 inches in diameter. The flavor ranges from sweet to bland to tart, depending on variety. Tomatoes are available in three basic types: small, round cherry tomatoes; plump, oblong plum, or Roma, tomatoes; and round or globe-shaped slicing tomatoes, probably the sweetest and
juiciest type. Within each type are numerous varieties, totaling about 4,000.
