If we look at the history of tomatoes in Turkey, for the first time in the island at the beginning of the 1900 letter in which this product is the official record of cultivation. Although the exact date of arrival in Izmir is not known, it can be said from the Commodity and Commodity Exchange records that tomato cultivation began in and around Izmir in the 1920s. Summer Menemen immediately occurs to me. Because in these months, the field tomatoes climbed to the peak of taste. The color is blood red. Inside is juicy. Green pepper will also be crispy these months. The Cretan Turks mostly used grasses from the plains and mountains. Some of these herbs were Sinavri, Radika, Tangle, Poppy, Hibiscus, Pepper, Whiteworm and Mustard.
