Loved by many all around the world and delicious when added to a favourite salad or a cheese sandwhich, tomatoes are often mistaken as a vegetable when, in actual fact, tomatoes really belong to the fruit family. To understand this, one must know that all fruits have seeds whereas vegetables do not have seeds. This would make not only tomatoes a fruit but pumpkins, squash and cucumbers too. With no seeds, lettuce, carrots, radishes, broccoli and cauliflower are, quite definitely a part of the vegetable family. With this being said, however, tomatoes are often referred to as a vegetable, especially when cooking is concerned. As a tomato is used, more often than not, when cooking savory dishes it falls into the vegetable category in many cook books. Most fruits are considered to be sweet where as most vegetables are savory in nature. Fruit or vegetable the tomato adds flavour to many dishes.

Botanically, a tomato is the ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering plant. Therefore it is a fruit or, more precisely, a berry.

Tomato is a fruit... But everyone has neglected to mention it is a specific type of fruit. It is what is considered a "true berry"

Fruits grow on trees and vegetables grow in the ground and a tomato grows in the ground not on a tree. (:
