Compare with Ugly Tomato.
Once a creature eats the fruit, it leaves behind a half-eaten fruit that is inedible, but still classified as a fruit - this can confuse creatures. The One Chomp Nuts COB fixes this. Zap created a Modified Tomatoes & Nuts COB which altered the tomatoes to be invisible until they were ripe and fix a problem where they would sometimes get stuck in one pose. A tomato gun toy is also available in C2.
There is a Golden Tomatoes third-party COB.
Creatures 3/Docking Station
Tomatoes are available for C3/DS through several third party agents, including the Albian Fruit Basket and the Terra metaroom. These Tomatoes are almost identical in appearance and effect to the C2 versions they are based on.
