A sequel to my long-forgotten Potato list.
True statement: Tomatoes are fruit not vegetables. At least for the sake of this post.
- While tomatoes are, by definition, fruit, there is a practical consideration we need to address when speaking of them.
- Both tomatoes and cucumbers are fruit; they don’t taste like fruit. So from now on, they will be vegetables.
- Can you really trust his judgment he claimed that Tomatoes are vegetables you can’t trust the judgment of a person who thinks that?
- Speaking of fruit, does anyone fancy a fresh tomato? They’re nice and sweet…
- As it is known to us, all tomatoes are fruit, anyone with a different stupid opinion is free to speak up (so that we can insult them for not knowing better)…
- Although tomatoes are fruit (being a seed baring part of the plant that is meant to be eaten), in cooking, we use them as we would use vegetables, so to avoid misunderstandings, I will call them as such.
- Calling a tomato a vegetable is not only the result of great misunderstanding but a purposeful lie.
- Without him, we wouldn’t know that tomatoes are fruit not vegetables, of course, we can trust him to know where to find clean water.
- Tomatoes are fruit not vegetables, only by the standards of Linguistic Prescriptivism in modern usage it doesn’t really matter.
- We can’t abandon tomatoes status as a fruit, as long as differentiating between fruits and vegetables is important to us.
