I don't think you will overdose on fruit.
I've been eating too many Dairylea Dunkers though.
And Monster Munch.

You can overdose on bananas quite easily. Eating too many tomatoes is likely stomach cramps, nausea, and diarrhoea

My brother once turned orange from eating too many sweet potatoes when he was a kid.

I know I'd never overdose on tomatoes as I do not like fruit at all, but it would probably make you ill IF you eat too many of them

That would probably be more interesting than the usual yellow.

I have heard a rumour that if you eat an awful lot of carrots it improves your eyesight.

I've never heard of either of those things but they would both be awesome names for bands.

A story...

I went driving through Europe down to Greece with friends. As we reached Greece, we saw a guy selling tomatoes at the side of the road. We had very little idea what price we should pay. We didn't speak Greek. He didn't speak English. We haggled a bit (awkwardly). Eventually, we handed over some cash. We discovered that we had bought, not a bag of tomatoes, but both his crates of tomatoes.

They were delicious.

After the five of us had being eating tomatoes all day, every day, for a week, none of us could face another tomato. They went rotten and we ditched them.

I'm fairly sure they can do you no harm.
