Kraft Commercial - Really Big Mistake
In the Kraft Italian salad dressing commercial where the tomatoes jump out of the basket and onto the salad dressing container, the announcer says, "Vegetables know what they like," there's one problem: tomatoes are fruits, not vegetables. How dumb can they get?

After studying a little plant biology, I can assure you that cucumbers, pumpkins, tomatoes, avocados, and a number of other "vegetables" are in fact fruits. What we eat are the fruits of the plants, defined as the fleshy part of the plant (which once was the flower) containing the seeds. So it is a mistake. Nyah!

Tomatoes are only considered fruits beause they have internal seeds (same with cucumbers and squash). But they are they are considered vegetables for many other reasons. I, as well as many others, consider them as vegetable.

also, define a vegetable. Scientifically, there is no real such thing unless you categorize them as "the part of the plant that isn't fruit". Tomatoes which can be sweet, but not very sweet get put into this category. Potatoes are really tubers, onions are root bulbs, celery is the stalk of the celery plant, and spinach is really the leaf of a plant. But onions and potatoes have flowers, although the above ground portions of potatoes are poisonous and onion's fruit isn't really that tasty looking. Enough from the plant girl.

Um, don't read too much into the commercial. True, the tomato is a fruit, it can also be considered as a vegetable.

Well, that is a pretty big reason for them to be called fruits. They are not only considered to be fruits, they are!!! Also coming under the FRUIT category are cucumbers and pumpkin

Reguarding the last comment. If all it takes is for something to have seeds to be a fruit, then wouldn't peas, corn, carrots, green beans, etc. then be called fruit? Its a fruit because it has ovaries with the seeds INSIDE. (just had to be the 17 year old smart-alec I am...)

According to the Supreme Court in 83 or 84, Tomatoes are vegetables. According to science, they are fruits, because the only thing that decides if it's a fruit or a vegetable is if it has seeds. A cucumber is a fruit. Don't you love the US?
