  • A tomato is a fruit.

    A tomato is the product of flowering plant and it has seeds, which makes it a fruit in the most technical sense. Because of its mild flavor, however, it pairs very well with vegetables and is used in combination with vegetables in many dishes. For this reason, many people mistake it as a vegetable.

  • It's both a fruit and a vegetable

    Scientifically/Botanically a tomato is a fruit. It's just what they have determined. But logically it is a vegetable. It is used as a vegetable and eaten as a vegetable. You wouldn't put tomato in a dessert pie. You wouldn't take tomatoes and put it in a fruit salad. It is considered a vegetable because it tastes and acts like one. Now people use the whole it has seeds as a reason to say its a fruit but this an incorrect statement. Seeds don't make something a fruit. Fruits grow from the bud of a flower which is what a tomato and all other fruits do. Vegetables are harvested from the stem, leaf, or root of a plant. This is the basis of how the two are defined. Going of this definition a tomato is indeed a fruit, but becuase of how we use them I consider it a vegetable.

  • Fruits and veggy

    Tomato is a vegetable It may have seeds like fruit, but you buy it in the vegetable section of the market. It better compliments other vegetables. Tomatoes lack the inherent natural sweetness that typically accompanies a fruit. You can make a pie out of any fruit. A tomato pie would be a really bland pizza!I like fruit This isn't fruit because i like fruit and i dont like this so it isnt a fruit because fruit tastes nice. Does anyone agree - of course they do, fruit is sweet and tomatos are not sweet, not nice and very bad tasty. Why would this be a fruit if it tastes naughty.

  • A great tomato

    Some people like to classify a tomato as a fruit obviously their right but anyway, the tomato is and has always been, legally and scientifically a fruit it has seeds INSIDE of it, and it also has a fruit like core that other fruit like, Oranges and Strawberries have. The tomato is grown off a specific part of a flower or plant. This can hopefully settle this great debate. Thank you.

  • It is a fruit

    It has a protective shell and seeds on the inside which are edible, a sweet fruit on the inside. All of these classify it as a berry, which is a fruit. Even if it isn't a berry, it is still a fruit because it has seeds in it that are edible.

  • Why tomatoes are vegetables

    When you ask most people, these day, if a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable 66% say it’s a fruit and some say there both. Well, they’re all wrong. Just because they have seeds doesn’t mean they’re vegetables, lots of vegetables have seeds. Tomatoes also have the same characteristics that all vegetables have and there not sweet. Where do you buy tomato’s in the grocery store?

    Tomatoes are vegetables because fruits tend to be sweet for the most part and tomatoes aren't sweet.

All vegetables have roots, leaves and stems and so do tomatoes. Fruits and vegetable have a lot in common. Here is the characteristics of a fruit and a vegetable.

Vegetable The term vegetable generally means the edible parts of plants. Some vegetables do not contain seeds. Not sweet or very subtly sweet. While each vegetable is distinct in taste, hardly any vegetable can be classified as sweet, sour, salty or bitter. Low in fat and calories, high in fiber. Starchy vegetables like beet and potato are very high in sugar. Yes, they have seeds but, there not to sweet.

    Most fruit can and are put into a smoothie and they also taste good. If tomatoes were a fruit they would be in smoothies, too and it would taste good. Is ketchup a smoothie? Do you just drink it because it tastes good? It may have seeds like fruit, but where do you buy tomatoes in the grocery store? Have you ever notice it’s in the vegetable section of the market? Tomatoes lack the inherent natural sweetness that typically accompanies a fruit. You can make a pie out of any fruit. A tomato pie would be a really bland pizza! Ah, just think a tomato pie and yes, your probably are saying there are tomato pie but gross. Maybe if you’re on a diet it comes in handy.

  • Tomato is and will remain a vegetable forever.

    Tomato's are vegetables because fruits tend to be sweet for the most part and tomato's aren't sweet. Just because tomato's have seeds and all fruits have seeds doesn't automatically make them a fruit. There's a handful of vegetables that have seeds including cucumbers, peas, okras, zucchinis, bell peppers, chili peppers and squash. All of this evidence and analysis comes to prove that tomato's are vegetables and not fruits. Lastly, anybody who thinks that a tomato is a fruit and not a vegetable is a moron.

Botanically it's a fruit, culinarily it's a vegetable.
