Broken: Tomato description


Erik Andersson writes in:

The picture above shows a rather odd looking sign at my local food store here in Huddinge, Sweden.

The sign says "Swedish tomatoes, (from Holland)."

How are the tomatoes Swedish when they where grown in Holland?


well oviously they are a breed of tomatoes called"Swedish Tomatoes" that happen to be grown it Holland. do u also expect all the italian squash to be grown in Italy?

Clearly they were grown in both Sweden and Holland. Must have been on the border. Wait... there is no border.

Guys, the chap's Swedish. I imagine if "Swedish Tomatoes" were a brand name, he would know about it.

ObFact: The Swedish Chef did all his cooking in Elstree, northeast London.
