These Are Some Food Items We Never Really Labeled Or Just Called Them Vegetables But Are Actually Fruits!

Before we ‘borst’ your mind small, let’s go back to school a bit.

Aside from the fact that vegetables are those things we hate and fruits are the sweet stuff people usually turn to juice… what really makes a vegetable a vegetable and a fruit a fruit?

Botanically speaking, a fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant, whereas vegetables are all other plant parts, such as roots, leaves and stems.

According to the Merriam – Webster dictionary, “Anything that grows on a plant and is the means by which that plant gets its seeds out into the world is a fruit,”

So let’s look at the vegetables that are actually fruits because they are developed from the ovary of a flowering plant.

If you don’t believe us, google what fruits are… Now start looking at some of your so-called vegetables closely and ask yourself  “did they develop from the plant’s ovary or they are a part of the plant?”

And that’s how you’d know
