Question: What is a Tomato, is a tomato a fruit or vegetable?
Please explain why you think so. Best persuasive answer wins. Also is a cucumber a fruit or vegetable?
they are both in the fruit category, however, i prefer to look at them as veggies. fruits have the seeds in them. just like the first person said.
A Tomato is a fruit by nature of it''s genetic evidence from early Peru. It's name comes from lycopersicum, means "wolf-peach".
They're both both!
Fruits are the reproductive part of a plant, whereas vegetables have no technical botanical meaning. 'Vegetable' is a culinary (and very subjective) term. The edible part of any plant could be a vegetable.
Since cucumbers and tomatoes are both filled with seeds and plants, they're both fruits and vegetables.
i say its a vegetable but i also heard its a fruit so im not really sure but cucumbers ARE DEFINETELY vegetables
BOTH tomatoes and cucumbers are FRUITS. both the tomatoes and cucumbers are the plant of flowers. both of them have seeds! key word:SEEDS! anything that has seeds is a fruit:oranges, peppers, apples, melons, berries...etc. anything without seeds is a vegetable: spinach, lettuce, carrots..etc. hope this helps :)
Tomato is a fruit, cucumber is a vegetable
Vegetable. Fruits are usually sweet!!!
Both are actually fruits even though we call them vegetables. A fruit is the seed-bearing part of a plant.
Because it has seeds it makes it a fruit.
As stated above, it has seeds, therefore a fruit.
Both are fruits. The reason is because fruits have seeds while vegetables don't.
they are fruits
