And you find the answer to that in Wikipedia via 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato>? Of course not.

Re. DBpedia, if you have a Agriculture oriented data spaces (ontology 
and instance data) that references DBpedia (via linkbase) then you will 
have a better chance of an answer since we would have temporal 
properties and associated values in the Linked Data Space (one that we 
can mesh with DBpedia even via SPARQL).
