A tomato is a fruit! A fruit is a plant’s ripened ovary, which has seeds in it. As a tomato has seeds in a fruity flesh, it is a fruit. “Vegetable” usually refers to the stalk, roots, or leaves of a plant.
There are four definitions relating to fruits and vegetables:Fruit (scientific) the ovary of a seed-bearing plantFruit (culinary) any edible part of a plant with a sweet flavorVegetable (scientific) adjective – related to plants – edible or notVegetable (culinary) noun – edible plant or part of a plant other than the sweet fruit or seed – so leaf, stem or root of the plant.
So eggplants, bell peppers and tomatoes -are technically fruits – but called vegetables.
tomato is a fruit because it has seeds
It is biologically a fruit, and culinarily a vegetable.
