A fruit is a plant part that contains seeds. So the pea pod is a fruit, but the peas are seeds.

And a banana tree is an herbaceous plant, but it is not an herb An herb is a plant whose edible leaves are used for seasoning.

GotGarlic, You are right and lets agree on that they contain carbs but are not carbs.

car·bo·hy·drate
ˌ
kärbəˈhīˌdrāt

noun

Any of a large group of organic compounds occurring in foods and living tissues and including sugars, starch, and cellulose. They contain hydrogen and oxygen in the same ratio as water (2:1) and typically can be broken down to release energy in the animal body.

A food consisting of or containing a lot of carbohydrates.

I say again "peas and corn are carbohydrates"
