Is a Tomato a fruit or vegetable?
on who you ask!
Ask a grocer
and they may tell you it is a vegetable along with cucumbers, pumpkins, avocados, and peppers.
Ask a plant
scientist (a botanist) and these are all considered fruits.
are the roots (i.e... Carrots), tubers (i.e... potato), leaves (i.e.… spinach), stems (celery), or other edible parts
of the plant.
plants contain the seeds of the plants
to grow on trees, vines, and bushes.
tend to have the edible part beneath the soil.
So what about
nuts? Believe it or not they are considered fruits too (true nuts like chestnuts.)
Most refers to the majority but not all of the varieties.
