Who Knew about Fruits and Vegetables?

Perhaps I should go back and take biology again. I thought I knew what a fruit and what a vegetable were….but I was wrong, or was I?

Technically speaking, in scientific terms, if it has seeds, it’s a fruit. By those terms, the following are fruit: pumpkins, cucumbers, squash, green beans, and bell peppers.

However, if you are speaking in culinary terms, they are vegetables.

Get this, the US Supreme Court said a tomato is a vegetable, even though technically it’s a botanical fruit.

Crazy huh? Check this site out for more info: Fruit or Vege?

  1. So will you plant a vegetable or fruit garden?

  2. Will be a combo; I guess mostly fruit and herb though:
    Tomatoes, Cuces, Peppers (probably hot ones though), Basil, Cilantro, plus the Rosemary and Oregano I have year round.
