Light Up the Darkness with a Simple Tomato

By Mindy McIntosh-Shetter

Tomatoes are great for salads, pasta sauces, juice, and even as a possible cancer therapy.

But a little known fact about the simple tomato is that it can be used to generate electricity.

Any type of tomato will work but green ones are much better since they are more acidic.

The following information will get you started on this project and dazzle your gardening friends with the magic from the garden.

If one would like to do this with children as a science experiment try testing how much electricity is produced and what types of tomatoes produce the most. To get the hypothesis juices flowing consider testing homegrown verses hydroponics or paste verses beefsteak.
