Requirements: Show your sources, no vulgarity, have fun.
The high court issued this 1893 tomato ruling in a case brought by members of the Nix family against Edward Hedden, collector at the Port of New York, to recover the fees they spent transporting tomatoes.
The Nixes sued under the Tariff of 1883, which required taxes on imported vegetables " but not fruit
The U.S. government abandoned the Tariff of 1833 for the Black Tariff of 1842, which the Walker Tariff later replaced. But the court's ruling on tomatoes' classification still stands and continues to affect legal proceedings

I argue Tomatoes are fruits due to the fact they have Reproductive Organs.
Reproductive Organs: The parts of a plant (such as flowers, fruits, and seeds) involved in reproduction.
The answer is fairly simple according to Exploring Creation with Biology; If a plant has reproductive organs, it is a fruit in a biological perspective.
To further stress my case;
A vegetable would fall under this definition
Vegetative Organs: The parts of a plant, such as (stems, roots and leaves) that are not involved in reproduction.
A tomato is a vegetable
I'm confused... you say "I argue Tomatoes are fruits" then in the bottom of your post you say "A tomato is a vegetable" which side are you in?
