Yes. But on Tuesdays, I reverse.

At least we can agree on something! But we just normally call them tomaters.

No, guys, you are all wrong, it's obviously pronounced tomato, but everyone thinks it is pronounced "tomato", you are all wrong, exept for landmark, he is the only one that said tomato instead of tomato, the others are all wrong.

NOT ONLY THAT BUT THIS:


Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?


The confusion about 'fruit' and 'vegetable' arises because of the differences in usage between scientists and cooks. Scientifically speaking, a tomato is definitely a fruit. True fruits are developed from the ovary in the base of the flower, and contain the seeds of the plant (though cultivated forms may be seedless). Blueberries, raspberries, and oranges are true fruits, and so are many kinds of nut. Some plants have a soft part which supports the seeds and is also called a 'fruit', though it is not developed from the ovary: the strawberry is an example.

As far as cooking is concerned, some things which are strictly fruits, such as tomatoes or bean pods, may be called 'vegetables' because they are used in savoury rather than sweet cooking. The term 'vegetable' is more generally used of other edible parts of plants, such as cabbage leaves, celery stalks, and potato tubers, which are not strictly the fruit of the plant from which they come. Occasionally the term 'fruit' may be used to refer to a part of a plant which is not a fruit, but which is used in sweet cooking: rhubarb, for example.

So, the answer to the question is that a tomato is technically the fruit of the tomato plant, but it's used as a vegetable in cooking.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

Are you a politician? You've just definitively answered a question not even asked.

Or are you suggesting that when it is a fruit it is "tomato," but when a vegetable it is "tomato?"

All fruits are vegetables, since they're neither animal nor mineral.

I'm a fruit, since I came from an ovary.

My underwear is fruit, since it says it came from the loom.

My underwear is "Haines", the only place I'll keep my "buns". (or "rolls", come to think of it)

In Alabama, they are called "Maters". They only call them tomatoes when "Fried Green" precedes it.

When my brother got divorced, I asked him what happened. He said, "I said tomato, and she said shut the **** up!"

I promise if I win the lotto , I'll fly all of you to Spain for the annual La Tomatina festival and you can settle the matter there. http://ashleystravel.com/celebrating-the......n-spain/

You have to admit it would be a great tomato fight.
