As a general rule, the tomato symbolizes emotionality. This expression is often used: "Being red as a tomato", shows that our sexual energy is suppressed or over-emphasized.

In the Bambara system, tomato juice is assimilated into the bloodstream. This fruit carries within it the embryo, because its grains are seven in number, the number of the twin, a primordial existential principle.
The fruitfulness of the tomato is also underlined by many ritual practices in the everyday life of the Bambara, such as the habit that couples have, before uniting, to eat a tomato."
