What’s the difference in fruits and vegetables?

 

Q. Is dere anything like fruity fruits and vegetable fruits?..if yes,I want to know the difference!

 

A. Botanically, fruits contain seeds and vegetables do not. However, from the culinary perspective fruits are considered sweet or tart and are often consumed as a snack or dessert. Vegetables are more savory in flavor and often eaten as or with a main course. Some fruits such as squashes, cucumbers and tomatoes actually fall into the vegetable category because of their flavor and usage in cooking.
