A tomato is a food item that heals 200 lifepoints when eaten. Its main use is as an ingredient in other foods; tomatoes are needed to make garden pies, vegetable battas and cheese and tomato battas, and egg and tomato (used as the topping for egg potatoes), as well as ugthanki kebabs and all types of pizzas.
Members can store five tomatoes in a basket. One basket of tomatoes is required to pay a gardener to watch over growing yanillian hops or a growing oak tree, and three baskets of tomatoes are required to pay them to watch over a growing cadava berry bush.
Members can grow tomatoes by planting three tomato seeds in an allotment patch at level 12 Farming. They can plant a marigold seed in the flower patch to help protect the tomatoes from disease, or pay the gardener two sacks of cabbages to ensure they grow.
A tomato spawns in the Bandit Camp in the Wilderness, on a stool near the fairy ring in the Feldip Hills Jungle Hunter area, and on the first floor of Aggie's house in Draynor Village. In issue 1 of Postbag from the Hedge (dated 26 September 2005), Aggie claims to have created the tomato accidentally whilst trying to summon a lesser demon. It is unclear whether she is referring to the particular tomato in her house (explaining why it keeps reappearing), or is claiming to be the origin of all tomatoes. In any case, her claims cannot necessarily be taken too seriously, as she also says that tomatoes "do sometimes bite"; there is no evidence of this in the game.
Players with level 2 Thieving can steal tomatoes from the vegetable stalls in Taverley. After completing the Fremennik Trials quest, members can also steal from the vegetable stalls in Miscellania and Etceteria, or simply buy them from the greengrocer there.
Players can buy tomatoes from Wydin's Food Store in Port Sarim, Hudo's Grand Tree Groceries in the Grand Tree of the Gnome Stronghold, or (depending on their progress in the Recipe for Disaster quest) from the Culinaromancer's Chest in Lumbridge Castle. The stock replenishes at one tomato per minute.
Members can also acquire tomatoes by talking to the Recruiter in West Ardougne; the nearby men will throw tomatoes at him, and players can pick these up from the ground. But this is a very slow method for obtaining tomatoes, and other methods except waiting for spawns are greatly preferred.
