There are some fruits that people always mistake for vegetables because, well, they just seem more like vegetables. They’re often more savory than sweet and are used the way vegetables would be used, say in salads or other vegetable dishes.
Fruits always contain seeds and pits, which is what makes all of the foods listed below fruits rather than vegetables.
Tomatoes are a fruit in the nightshade (Solanaceae) family.
Avocado is a fruit (technically a berry) from the plant family Lauraceae.
Cucumbers are a member of the gourd family Cucurbitaceae. They develop from a flower and are classified as a fruit.
All varieties of squash of the genus Cucurbita are classified as fruits. This includes pumpkins, zucchini, summer squash, butternut squash, and acorn squash.
Eggplant is a fruit in the nightshade (Solanaceae) family. It is related to tomatoes and potatoes. Interestingly, eggplant is classified as a berry.
All peppers, including bell peppers, are fruits of the genus Capsicum. Like eggplant and tomatoes, they are a member of the nightshade family.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
