People often ask
Tomato comes from the Spanish word “tomate” which means “turgid fruit”. This word is included in part of a popular saying regarding its difference in pronunciation between American English and British English. When presented with two choices that are very similar, you might say “təˈmeɪtoʊ, təˈmɑːtoʊ", which means, just as the two pronunciation choices for the word tomato have the same meaning, the two choices are only slightly different, and so it makes no difference really which of the two you choose.
