The Famous Super Mario Bros. 2 Tomato

A random thought:

Has anyone else ever noticed that while the pluckable vegetables in Super Mario Bros. 2 vary from level to level, tomatoes only appear in the game’s final level? In the big bad’s room? With Wart and the so-called Bad Dream Machine?

Am I the only one who’s ever noticed this?

Why would Nintendo bother to design a tomato and use it only in one room in the entire game?

And better yet: Why would Wart leave a machine in his hideout that produces the one thing that kills him?

And why is the one thing that kills him fresh produce?
