Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

ok me and my gf have been debating about this for awhile now..
wat is a tomato classified as? i say vegie she says fruit..so i did some
research and in the U.S it is classified as a vegie in the trade tariff thing..
meaning in order to ship it, it undergoes the vegie taxes instead of fruit taxes..but its chemically or biologically a fruit..the makeup of it..

but i say its a vegie..so aside from all the research and stuff..im wonderin wat other ppl say it is

Re: Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

It's a fruit. Why? Because it has seeds on the inside. A fruit is basically a fertilized fruit ovary and the seeds are the eggs.

Re: Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

its a fruit but culture wise and culinary tradition base it as a vegetable. So you will always have that argument such as what came first the chicken or the egg.

Re: Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

/wrist

Culinary/US law: Veggie
Botanically/Scientifically: Fruit

So it depends on the context. In reality, you should always be calling it a fruit though. Classifying a plant based on how it's used is pretty stupid. That'd be like me calling a bear a human because they can sometimes ride bikes at the circus. Fucking stupid.

Re: Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

I think it depends on how its cooked, if you eat it uncooked its a fruit, but cooked its a vegetable, but thats how I feel.

Re: Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

since tomatoes have seeds, tomatoes are fruit

Re: Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

I heard somewhere that tomatoes are a berry, but anyway. I think a fruit because it has seeds.

Re: Tomato: Fruit or Vegie?

In school, you're taught that tomato = fruit. If you're becoming a chef or an officer in US Trade Customs, then it's a veggie. But does it really matter, anyway?

This thread is the epitome of failure--tomatoes are not a debate. /closed
