However you may pronounce this red, round and juicy fruit, there’s one thing we can all agree on – tomatoes are absolutely deeelicious and to us, one of the most interesting foods out there!

Here’s a little quiz for you! Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?

If you said fruit, you’re correct! Kind of…While there tends to be some confusion about what a tomato is considered to be, a tomato scientifically speaking, is 100% a fruit because of it’s seeds! Often times though, tomatoes are referred to as a veg in cooking because from a culinary standpoint, it is used in more savory than sweet cooking. Since a vegetable is also defined as any edible part of a plant, most consumers and grocers define a tomato as a veg!

At one point, this debate became SO heated that it was actually brought to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1893 to debate the taxing of a tomato. It was here when it was technically dubbed a veg because, well most people thought it to be one!
