In the US we can get in the can: whole tomaotes, diced tomato, crushed tomato, tomato puree, tomato paste. The best are saved for the whole tomato. Those with "field damage or blemish" find there way to the other forms. It gives one a variety of cooking choices. In general, out of season, and for cooking purposes, the canned product is quite fine. Usually very rich and sweet. Ketchup is a "sauce" made with vinegar, sugar and spices. btw, that kitty with the helmet is from New Jersey, the tomato state!
