    Just wanted your opinions on what you thought it was and why. I know the true answer but I want to see what people have to say about it, The real answer will be posted in one hour.

    Ok the answer is that while it has more qualities and aspects of a fruit, it is in the U.S. legally considered to be a vegetable. Over a 100 years ago there was a big taxing on vegetables and it created controversy whether or not the tomato was a fruit or vegetable. The case eventually went to the Supreme Court and was ruled to be a vegetable.

    My answer - both.

    Vegetable is, scientifically, an ambiguous and imprecise term. So the definition is from a culinary perspective. In this sense, tomato is a vegetable.

    In botany, "fruit" has a specific meaning and in this sense tomato is a fruit.

    From the article you cite:

    "While it is botanically a fruit, it is considered a vegetable for culinary purposes . . ."

    Which is precisely the point I made in the prior post.

    Leave it up to the Supreme Court to over rule science.
