Do you call tomatoes as vegetables or as fruits? Some say it is fruit, some say it is vegetable. What is your opinion?

Botanically a fruit, the tomato is nutritionally categorized as a vegetable Since "vegetable" is not a botanical term, there is no contradiction in a plant part being a fruit botanically while still being considered a vegetable.

I would classify tomatoes as being a vegetable as well. I feel that most fruits have more of a sweet taste than tomatoes do. Either way tomatoes are still healthy for a person and always make sure I have them in my sub sandwiches and salads. Tomatoes are usually mixed in with other vegetables whether a salad or another dish containing veggies.

now theres a questions, some say its fruit others say its vegetable. Technically because it grows on the branch, from the flower and not from the root, it is technically a fruit but it is served as a vegetable.

I've always referred to it as a vegetable and I'll keep on doing so even if it's actually a fruit.
