This vile vegetable… or are tomatos fruit?… err, this ferocious fruit can be located northeast of the area transition to Rabanastre, on a ledge overlooking the desert below. You should consider clearing out the Wolves nearby before engaging the Rogue Tomato to prevent any complications. If you need some healing, you can always pop a Potion to recover.
As far as foes go, the Rogue Tomato isn’t much more challenging than anything else you’ve fought in this area. Its HP aren’t far from Vaan’s, and possibly somewhat lower if you’ve leveled up a bit. You can expect it to do just under 10~ damage with its melee attacks (not too far from what Wolves are doing), while you should easily dish out three times as much in return. That’s the arithmetic of success. After reducing it to around half its health, it’ll drop down off the ledge, forcing you to chase it down and finish the fight. It doesn’t have much worth stealing, but if you have sticky fingers and a mind for larceny, you can rob the naughty nightshade twice - once when it’s on the ledge, and again after it jumps down.
After it jumps down, pursue it to finish the fight. If you’ve taken care of the Wolves prowling about beforehand you should be fine, otherwise they may complicate matters. The only attack worth worrying about is its Flame Breath attack, which will do over 20~ damage to you. Again, if you’re taking too much punishment, be sure to use a Potion or some other form of restorative.
