  Tomato historian Andrew W. Smith set out to clarify this matter in his exhaustively researched book The Tomato in America: Early History, Culture, and Cookery. In it, he reveals that while pockets of colonial Americans did enthusiastically grow and eat tomatoes, commonplace use was slow in coming, with no one defined point of introduction. A few years after he started growing heirloom tomatoes, Rodger Winn had a problem—way too much fruit. This is because he grows tomatoes very well, and from unique selections, some of which time almost forgot. He's a seed saver. And in the Midlands of South Carolina, he's known as the Tomato Man.
