What fruit is also a veggie?

The following "vegetables" are really fruits in the botanical sense:  tomatoes, okra, squash, cucumbers, bean & pea pods, peppers and eggplant. Even a corn grain is technically a fruit because each grain develops from a separate seed-bearing ovary with a long, thread-like style. Since they are typically eaten with a main entree (not as a dessert), all these botanical fruits are also called vegetables.
