Is a tomato a fruit or vegetable?

 

Q. A tomato is a fruit?

 

A. Botanists or scientists classify tomatoes as a fruit because they are a product from the seed-bearing structure of a flowering tomato plant.  Cooks, however, consider tomatoes a vegetable because they are less sweet and more savory and are served with main meals rather than a dessert.
