Why would you want to buy a tomato that is nutritionally inferior despite its bath of ‘cides?’
Then there is the darkest ‘cide’ of all; Estabrook alludes to homicides of migrant farmworkers, in particular the ones who try to escape from the actual slavery conditions of company store economics, theft of wages, violence and retribution.
It’s very ironic that what was once considered a poisonous fruit in America until it was popularized by Thomas Jefferson, slaveowner, has once again become a poisonous fruit and an alleged enabler of modern day slavery. Tomato seeds of change, people, one tomato at a time.
