Tomato: fruit or vegetable? Descartes didn't tackle that question, but its a familiar debate. Maybe you have your own thoughts. Ask a botanist, they will say fruit -- it is the ripened ovary containing the seeds of the plant. All other parts of the plant are considered vegetable. But ask the Supreme Court (Nix v. Hedden, 1886), and they will say... vegetable. Why? Because people THINK tomatoes are vegetables, therefore they are.
