Vegetables That Are Actually Fruits

Other fruits include jalapeños, avocados, and, of course, tomatoes. These parts of the plant are botanically classified as fruits because they contain the plant's seeds. In botany, there's actually no such thing as a vegetable-the "vegetables" we eat are referred to as whatever part of the plant they comprise. For example, celery is a stem, and kale is a leaf.
