The Q&A Archives: Fruit Or Vegetable

Question: I have grown Burpee Tomatoes for at least 20 years. Please settle a dispute between myself and co-workers. The tomatoe, is it a fruit or a vegetable. I believe it to be a vegetable, but we need the truth. Thanks. By the way, your burpless cucumbers are the best ever!! Thanks for your help

Answer: Botanically, they are a fruit because the seeds are inside the tomato, however they are sold in the vegetable section of the seed catalog and in the veggie section of the grocery store and most people think of them as a vegetable. I hope this helps. Glad you like the cukes!
