The Ultimate Fruit Salad

Posted on December 1, 2012 at 4:20 PM


Quite often the question arises "is a tomato a fruit or vegetable?" Well to answer the age old question, it is actually a fruit.


Confusion between fruits and vegetables usually arise because of their different usages. A lot of fruits may actually be referred to as vegetables because they are used in a savoury manor as opposed to sweet. The simple definition of a fruit is that it's a structure of a plant that contains its seeds such as a grapes, oranges, watermelon and apples. These can be removed from the plant and it still continues to grow. A vegetable is usually the plant itself such as carrots, potatoes, celery, and broccoli.


Here is a surprising list of 'not so common' fruits,


- eggplant


- zucchini


- pumpkin


- capsicum


- cucumber


- squash


- avocado


- tomato


- okra


- chillies


- olives


- almonds


- figs


- lemons


- limes


- coconut


So now when someone tells you they feel like a fruit salad, you have so many more options than the obvious one.
