The study aimed at assessing the awareness concerning the qualities of tomatoes and their products, as well as the frequency and determinants of their consumption by the students of the University of Life Sciences in Lublin. The respondents included 108 female and 122 male students. Statistical analyses (the test and the Kruskal-Wallis test) revealed some differentiation in that awareness, depending on the sex and place of residence. Women and residents of towns of up to 50,000 inhabitants revealed a higher level of awareness, as compared with men and residents of villages and towns with more than 50,000 inhabitants.
