In real life, for most people, tomato is essential food rich in vitamins and minerals and is crucial for the human body’s health and well-being.
For some, it is even the food of heaven – juicy, healthy, and delicious.
Everything that exists in real life can also appear as a dream motive.
Tomato can emerge as a motive in a dream world, and there it has its interesting meaning; some say that it is not easy to comprehend always, or it has strictly bad or good meaning.
Experts claim that the meaning of the tomato in a dream is associated in the majority of cases with fertility, regardless of who has such a dream, male or female. Both cases are equally common.
In fact, the tomato is associated with essential and useful things, and having in mind its red color.
It is a representation of happiness, joy, or love and well-being. Or the lack of it… Depending on the other circumstances of a dream.
Meaning and Symbolism
The tomato as a motive in a dream does not appear as often as we think. In fact, it is very rare – the symbolic meaning in most cases depends on whether someone eats or picks a tomato in a dream, whether he buys it or “hits” someone with it, whether he drinks tomato juice or has “stains” with it, etc.
There are numerous versions of the tomato that can appear in a dream world.
If you just see a tomato somewhere in nature or the house (on the table, in the plate) in a dream, such a dream suggests that the person who has this dream is filled with unrealistic hopes or expectations not just from himself/herself but from the world, which is the worst part.
It is the dream that is often in the lives of those people who, in reality, think of success or happiness, fantasizes about it, and at the same time, do absolutely nothing about achieving goals and plans.
This is the dream of those who are waiting for a better life, wealth, and carefreeness to come to them “on their own.”
At the same time, they enjoy and don’t worry about anything and are not truly putting any effort into the process. This is the main meaning of the tomato in a dream. As you can see, it is not good or bad meaning, and it is more a signification of inner life.
Eating a tomato in a dream, and it is fresh, juicy, well-ripened, and tastes very good, in reality, means that you are very depressed and worried about some circumstances.
If such a dream is repetitive, then it implies that you are either dissatisfied with some business results or have some unfulfilled desires and ambitions that create very great stress and nervousness because you fail to realize them as you initially imagined.
Reality and your vision of what your life should look like are completely different – there comes to dream about the wonderfully tasty tomato.
If the tomato that you are eating in a dream is not tasty, such a dream shows that you are, in reality, hiding something and that you are in some kind of secret romance.
For some, this dream suggests that the plot with some people endanger someone else’s well-being and diminish others’ results.
In this case, a tomato is not a good symbol, but it shows how weak and insecure you are.
If you are harvesting it in a dream, and it looks so wonderful in it, such a dream shows that you are competent and ready to see or get the results of your work.
It symbolizes that you will become wealthy and personally responsible for all the happiness that awaits you in the professional field and your strength of will and inexhaustible energy and knowledge.
However, if you pick a tomato in your dream that has not yet ripened enough, but you still do not have time to wait for it to grow enough and be “ready for harvest,” this warning warns that you are a very impatient and hasty person, who despite being very hardworking and honest, she has neither the desire nor the patience to wait for “things to work out” correctly.
If this dream becomes regular, and you dream of it often, such a dream may suggest that there are some health problems along the way in front of you.
It is also a kind of warning to go to preventive or control medical reviews. Listen to it!
