In the US, tomatoes are a fruit and a vegetable. Interesting how this came about.
Tomatoes botanically are a fruit, but, according to law, they are a vegetable. During the 1800’s, New York’s port taxed imported vegetables, but not fruits. An importer wanting to cut costs, went to court stating tomatoes were fruits. His case went all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled, that produce often served with meats or fish is a vegetable. So, he had to pay a tomato tax and today we think of tomatoes as a vegetable.
