Talk:Tomato

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On the tomato page, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the tomato is a vegetable in 1887 and that a fruit is a plant where the flesh covers the seeds. If one clicks on Supreme court the supreme court's ruling, one will find that the tomato is the "healthiest vegetable" because it is "low in Calories". According to the same page, tomatoes have "vitamin C". Many other fruits have that too. Oranges and orange juices also have Vitamin C. There is a salad called Smokey tomato salad in which the main ingredient is the tomato while other salads, like fruit salad, are mainly tropical or citrus fruits. It serves 6 people. :)Coffsneeze 19:29, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Categorizing Page...[change source]

I understand that we have listed the Tomato as a vegetable, due to the common misconception. Should this page also be categorized as a vegetable? Or should it be categorized as a fruit? -Pending(tell me I screwed up and where) 14:17, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

WikiData item[change source]

The article for en:Tomato is on WikiMedia's "expanded list of articles every Wikipedia should have."

However, some users at WikiData such as User:Brya have made a separate item for language articles that seem like stubs on the assumption they are a separate topic.

These stub articles link only to each other, making it harder to link to real information about Tomato.

They also don't get counted by the automated programs as existing for "articles every wikipedia should have."

I am sure the users of this wiki intended to have an article about Tomato corresponding with the high quality articles and the "should have list".

But so far admins and bureaucrats at wikidata have backed up User Brya and keeping the languages segregated and have opposed me pointing this out.

If you can put in a word here about how you feel it might help!

Til Eulenspiegel, it is not clear what you are asking here. This page is for discussing the article on this project. We don't want a duplicate of the article on En-Wiki -- there is no point to that. Please be careful as many Wikipedia projects have rules against canvassing for votes or support in an argument. Regards, Etamni | ✉   17:33, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
It's okay - I have received only support from the other interlinked wikis, and a few of them have already switched to the real tomato wikidata item that "links" to en, as well as counts for "articles every Wikipedia should have". I was never really expecting anyone at "simple English" to comprehend what I was saying or to find much support at this particular project, being as it is "simple English" but so far everyone else has been most supportive!

@Til Eulenspiegel: Don't think this is the case. As specified by Brya here, the separate items refer to the plant and the actual fruit. Currently, it seems that the article here on Simple is more about the fruit than the plant. As well, if you need a second opinion, you can ask Caliburn, who was an admin at Wikidata. Cheers.

Yes, it is indeed the case that most languages other than simple English would want to link the main article and the "should have list" article, as I stated. What simple English considers its article to be about is up to the community of simple English speakers here and is no problem for me. Til Eulenspiegel (talk) 16:09, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
