Scientifically, the tomato is classified as a fruit; in cooking and everyday speech, it is called a vegetable.
Botanically, it's a berry.
Thanks for reminding me of that- my mother told me that years ago. I have added a berry option. My Bad.
Yeah. In our basic nutrition class in college, it says in the book we use that tomato is classified as a fruit. The only reason why people mistakenly think it's a vegetable is because we use it for cooking almost everyday. However, you can also eat it uncooked.
