About Tomatoes and Carrots

Post by NLSP on 2012-08-31, 17:18

I recently discovered that some people still believe that tomatoes are a vegetable, something that is as ridiculous as saying that carrots are a fruit...

what the hell is 'eaten as a vegetable' ?
do you eat on another way if something is a vegetable, a snack, a piece of meat, a fruit, a mushroom?
If I would start eat meat 'as a vegetable', what does that mean?

@Lily:
a fruit is a part of a flowering plant that derives from specific tissues of the flower, mainly one or more ovaries. Fruits are the means by which many plants disseminate seeds.
What is a tomato? the ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering tomato-plant

Think that is clear ...

And did you know that strawberries are not real fruits? The fleshy part you eat is actually a vegetable. Shocked

Olv is right, it's a 'schijnvrucht'.

A vegetable acting as a fruit.

I would like to point out to NLSP that if your mom says it's a vegetable, then it is a vegetable and you shouldn't even be discussing it here.
