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
