Tomato is grown like a berry type fruit but used as vegetable in cooking. Therefore if consumed raw, it is a fruit. And a vegetable when cooked.

Hi @kimi
Tomatoes really should be in a class by it'self . Tomatoes are scientifically berry-type fruits they can also be considered a culinary vegetable.
Tomatoes are also a member of the deadly nightshade family .The leaves are in fact poisonous, although the fruit is not.

In the United States it is the main ingredient in there 2 most popular condiments - Ketchup and Salsa.
In the World Tomatoes are number 1 because of it's use in Pizza sauce and Spaghetti or Marinara Sauce.

The most unusual use is for the " La Tomatina Festival " Held in Spain .
The pictures are fantastic. -

Have a Great Day !

There is a difference of views in the fact that the tomato a fruit or in being one of the vegetables. And the difference arising from it from a scientific point of tomatoes are a type of fruit because it is produced through the tomato flower and then grown by seeds that are found inside. On the other hand, the tomatoes used in the cooking process of cooking vegetables. So we can say that from a scientific point of tomatoes and fruit but Imkkna to look at her vegetables when cooking

Basically it is a fruit because:
" A ripened ovary in which seeds are enclosed " is called fruit.
Mostly all plants have fruits.
For example: Lady finger, pumpkin, brinjal, & many other such plants are known as vegetable plants but we does not cook these plants, rather we cook their fruits which is actually vegetable.
Fruit have different categories which decides their nature shape, taste & other qualities......................
