Most of America's fresh tomatoes come from the state of Florida. This book takes an everyday agricultural commodity and traces it back to the source, not just from farm to table, but from the laboratory to your plate. Tomatoland is a thought provoking book bringing attention to the plight of migrant farm workers in the tomato fields of Florida.
Barry Eastbrook combines first-hand reporting with ample research in biology, sociology, ecology,and crop science to show the lasting impact of our fondness for year round tomatoes.
