The Ultimate Question: Is it a fruit or a vegetable? Let's start with the tomato. DUH! It's a fruit; it's got seeds get over it vegetable lovers. But u can have it if you want. The tomato is a disgrace to the .fruit family because it gives you salmonella. Next is the avocado. Sorry, score 2 for the fruits. It's got a huge seed in the center. Now I've got some questions for you. What is ketchup? Is it a fruit or what? And what about potato chips? If there is anything else you can think of that could be a fruit OR vegetable or anything that is made from fruits or vegetables, please tell me. I hope I have sparked some deep thoughts.
