Open Sesame is the brain child of famous duo
I chose OS Box 2 . I could not guess the ingredient
on my first reading.But the second time i guessed it
right..Its TOMATO.Here is the riddle I got.
I think I am a pleased woman since I blush
I am so soft and shiny to your delicate touch
But look what I have for relatives , so different with no common string
one used for smoking , one for hotness , one used to refer idler and one referred as veggies king
I am not what you refer to me most often
I am fruit of labor but never called one so
I am neither a wolf nor a peach in the scale of one to ten
But then why do you think I am called one as so?
I can guess with envy or completely red with anger
A little crown on my head makes with my walk look like a swagger
You cant do without me as your day to day cooking
Tell me what veggie I am without too much thinking.
