Over the years it was found that when a tomato is red and ripe it was already too ripe to withstand the pressures of uneven roads plus weight pressures of tomatoes from the top. So it was found that if tomatoes are picked a few days earlier when just red and still firm the tomatoes are able to withstand the problems of transport and arrive at their destination still firm and unblemished.

A tomato is botanically a fruit but was defined by the US Congress in the 1800's as a vegetable so that it could be taxed. Their reasoning was that they are used as vegeta…bles for culinary purposes. It is a red fruit with seeds and similar to strawberries and other red fruits with seeds.
They are a vegetable
Wash your tomatoes. Dip them in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds or until the skins split. Remove them from the boiling water and immediately put them into cold water. Slip …off the skins and remove the cores. Leave whole or cut into halves. Put the tomatoes in a large saucepan and heat to boiling, gently mashing from time to time to create some juice. Boil gently for 5 minutes. Stir to keep them from scorching. Put the tomatoes and juice into clean jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice per quart to acidify. Add 1 teaspoon of salt per quart. Adjust the lids and rings. Process in a boiling water bath for 90 minutes. The water level should be 1-inch above the tops of the jars. Remove from canner, and let sit until they seal.

Tomato is singular and tomatoes are plural Totoma
No, the adjective 'that' is singular, the noun it describes, 'tomatoes' is plural. The corrected sentence is: Those tomatoes were smashed on the table.
