Is a tomato a vegetable or a fruit?

The debate is yet to convince me either way; and I would greatly appreciate it if someone could prove to me that a tomato is a fruit.

From a culinary point of view it is considered a vegetable.
From a botanist's point of view it is certainly a fruit.

Here's your answer.

Are you serious!
How can you say that Tomato is a fruit.
It is a vegetable since it grows on the ground.

Tomatoes, like grapes, grow in vines.

Not ALL tomatoes grow on vines. Some grow on bushes.

Boots61~
It goes both ways, apparently~
The U.S. Supreme Court settled this controversy on 10 May 1893, by declaring that the tomato is a vegetable, based on the popular definition that classifies vegetables by use, that they are generally served with dinner and not dessert (Nix v. Hedden (149 U.S. 304)).[72] The holding of this case applies only to the interpretation of the Tariff Act of 3 March 1883, and the court did not purport to reclassify the tomato for botanical or other purposes.

Tomatoes have been designated the state vegetable of New Jersey. Arkansas took both sides by declaring the South Arkansas Vine Ripe Pink Tomato both the state fruit and the state vegetable in the same law, citing both its culinary and botanical classifications. In 2009, the state of Ohio passed a law making the tomato the state's official fruit. Tomato juice has been the official beverage of Ohio since 1965.
I'd say FREGETABLE!

Thats something,
Perhaps depending on how you use it in your cooking dish it will define itself!.
Wont you say so?.

If you eat it like a vegetable,and it tastes like a vegetable, then it is a vegetable.
Do you usually eat it in desserts? NO. Although, you can make Tomato jelly that has
sugar, but so can you make pepper jelly.
Tomatoes are vegetables.
