Vegetable- an edible plant or part of a plant, but usually excludes seeds and most sweet fruit. This typically means the leaf, stem, or root of a plant.

Corn or Maize- a grain domesticated by indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times.

If it comes from the reproductive part of the plant, it’s a fruit. If it comes from the vegetative part of the plant, it’s a vegetable.

A Fruit comes from the reproductive part of the plant
A Vegetable comes from the vegetative part of the plant

Corn is a caryopsis, or dry fruit, which is more popularly known as a grain.



In order for corn to be a vegetable it must come from the stem, leaves, or root of the plant.



As observable in the two diagrams above......... Corn is not a vegetable ;D
