Am I A Fruit Or Vegetable? - Quiz

Here on the Hot courses editorial desk we love a Minstrel or five on a rainy afternoon (or any afternoon for that matter!) When writing our nutrition guide we Realised how much we had to learn, so thought we would play guess the vegetable with the rest of you to make us feel better!

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? 

    • A.

      Fruit

    • B.

      Vegetable

    Correct Answer
    A. Fruit
    Explanation
    A tomato is classified as a fruit because it develops from the ovary of a flower and contains seeds. Although it is commonly used in savory dishes and often referred to as a vegetable, botanically it meets the criteria of a fruit. In botanical terms, a fruit is the mature ovary of a flowering plant, while a vegetable refers to other edible parts such as leaves, stems, or roots. Therefore, despite its culinary usage, a tomato is scientifically considered a fruit.
