To really figure out if a tomato is a fruit or vegetable, you need to know what makes a fruit a fruit, and a vegetable a vegetable. The big question to ask is, DOES IT HAVE SEEDS? If the answer is yes, then technically, you have a FRUIT. This, of course, makes your tomato a fruit. It also makes cucumbers, squash, green beans and walnuts all fruits as well. VEGETABLES such as, radishes, celery, carrots, and lettuce do NOT have seeds (that are part of what we eat) and so they are grouped as vegetables. Now don't go looking for tomatoes next to the oranges in your grocery stores. Certain fruits like tomatoes and green beans will probably always be mostly referred to as "vegetables" in today's society.

Depends on your out look of it People say that anything with seeds is a fruit. So does that mean jalepenos and peppers and cucumbers are fruit? I dunno. I don't really care I suppose :)

tomato scientifically is a fruit.but it is called as vegetable because no one eats it as it is and it is mainly used in cooking like other vegetables.

Its a fruit of course. But we use it as a vegetable. In some countries, tomatoes are eaten as fruits such as apples etc
