Check the free online dictionary. That's faster for all of us since we don't have to crawl through useless messages. Fruit.

I thought it was a trivia test? :)

In botany, a fruit is the ripened ovarytogether with seedsof a flowering plant.

Modern society commonly refers to all these fruits as vegetables: Pumpkin, Squash, Tomato, Cucumbers, Green beans, Capsicum peppers, Bell peppers.

But say you are keywording for people who are not botanists? Better say they are vegetables so they can be found.

If you are speaking in a botanical, scientific context, then they are FRUITS because they all have seeds. If you are speaking in culinary terms, they can all be properly called VEGETABLES.

What is to stop you from categorizing it as both a vegetable and a fruit? I think it is appropriate in this case.  ;D

I took a friend from England to California once and we stayed with friends who had an avocado tree in the backyard.  I swear, we fought over this question for the whole week.  Finally someone dug out a dictionary and it said "Avocado - a fruit that eats like a vegetable."  I interpreted it that I was correct that it is a fruit, but we drove all across Nevada and Arizona and he kept on saying it was a vegetable.    (Regardless, we both agreed that a tree with that much "fruit" at home would bear about a million dollars.)

Don't get me started.  :D

Ever see a menu that offers "Walleyed Pike" fish dinner? Well Walleye is a perch not a Pike! And for the topic at hand, yes, people call many things vegetables that are really fruits. So calling it both would seem a good move for selling photos.

Next I suppose some site will refuse it as being marked as fruit, when that's what it is.

 "Well Walleye is a perch not a Pike! "


Actually, a Walleye is from the Perch family, but not a "Perch". In Canada, Walleye is often mistakenly called a Pickeral, which is a hybrid Pike. A Pike is a totally different fish.

I like the Avocado line... a fruit that eats like a veggie!  Put it in both, IMHO

I don't like it, so it's gotta be a vegetable

We eat avocado as dessert in Brazil, mashed with milk, making a cream. Well, I don't like it. 

Tomato is a fruit too.
