The web color tomato is a medium reddish-orange color that is the color not of actual tomatoes (which are redder), but of tomato soup. The color "tomato" is displayed at right.

The first recorded use of "tomato" as a color name in English was in 1891. [ Maerz and Paul "A Dictionary of Color" New York:1930 McGraw-Hill Page 205; Color Sample of Tomato: Page 29 Plate 3 Color Sample I12]

When the X11 web colors were invented in the mid-1990s, the color tomato was made into one of the web colors.
