    Wow, Jinxiejae. You`re one of those people huh?

    "A tomato isn`t a fruit or a vegetable, but a berry". Well guess what, smartass? It`s all three.

    The entire plant is considered vegetation, and therefore falls into the category "vegetable". But the reproductive portion of the fruit specifically is known as the fruit portion of the vegetable. Fruit is a subcategory of the vegetable as a whole, just like the leaf or the stem.

    But idiots like you want to argue and say that it`s neither, but that it`s a "berry". Well, genius, this may come as a surprise to you, but a berry is a subcategory of fruits. This means that if something is a berry, then is definitely a fruit, and therefore definitely also a vegetable.

    Wow, RobSwindol. You`re one of those people huh? You need to insult people and spew out useless and inaccurate facts to to make yourself feel important. Pathetic. We don`t need people like you here (or anywhere).

    Botanically, a tomato is a fruit: the ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering plant. However, the tomato has a much lower sugar content than other edible fruits, and is therefore not as sweet. Typically served as part of a salad or main course of a meal, rather than at dessert, it is considered a vegetable for most culinary uses. One exception is that tomatoes are treated as a fruit in home canning practices: they are acidic enough to process in a water bath rather than a pressure cooker as vegetables require. Tomatoes are not the only food source with this ambiguity: green beans, eggplants, cucumbers, and squashes of all kinds (such as zucchini and pumpkins) are all botanically fruits, yet cooked as vegetables.

    Fruit = Seeds inside.

    Vegetable = Seeds outside.

    Berries (straw, blue, rasp, black, and otherwise) = flowers.

    While Fredo and Pid`jin is one of my favorite webcomics, this one being quite old really, I am more entertained by the comments.

    A single line seems to have triggered both an autistic meltdown and white-knighting.

    jcly, actually, there is nothing inacurrate about my facts.

    Here is Wikipedia`s definition of a vegetable.

    "In culinary terms, a vegetable is an edible plant or its part, intended for cooking or eating raw. In biological terms, "vegetable" designates members of the plant kingdom."

    So, all of the plant is considered the vegetable (this includes the fruit of the plant).
