Potatoes are vegetables, Tomatoes are fruits. Nobody really considers a tomato a fruit anyway though. If you look it up its a fruit:)

Vegetables are eaten in a variety of ways as part of main meals and as snacks. The nutrient content of different types varies considerably. With the exception of pulses, vegetables provide little protein and fat. Leafy vegetables lose moisture and vitamin C degrades rapidly during storage and should be stored for the minimum time in a cool place such as a plastic bag.

FRUIT... - fruit
I know that potatoes are considered a vegetable. I consider tomatoes vegetables also. But I believe they are really fruit...something about the seeds make it a fruit?

A potato is a root, like a carrot or beet. A tomato is a fruit. Although it isn't overly sweet as you would believe a fruit to be.

Potatoes are a vegetable but tomatoes are a fruit, although generally they are eaten as a vegetable. Why, I have no idea but tomatoes definately belong to the fruit family. :)
