Kid In King Arthur's Court, A - Early Tomatoes
Around halfway through the movie, Calvin Fuller (Thomas Ian Nicholas) is in King Arthur's castle and says he wants to cook something more tasteful. So he goes for a couple of cheeseburgers. He takes a tomato from the bowl on the table, slices it and puts it in the buns along with cheese, lettuce and meat. Yeah, it tastes good, but... oops, King Arthur lived (if he ever did) in the 6th century and tomatoes were brought in Europe from America in 15th-16th century. Pretty big mistake, isn't it?

No, it's not a mistake at all. Tomatoes did exist in King Arthur's court (I read it somewhere). But there is half a slipup in here, tomatoes would not be in the bowl on a table, they are related to nightshade (a deadly poison) and in Arthur's time people thought they could kill you. So you got it half right.

Whatever book told Mindy that tomatoes existed in medieval Europe was in error. Tomatoes are an American plant.
