TRUTH !!
Botanically speaking, fruits are the mature ovaries of plants. They enclose the ovules, or
seeds, as they develop, and ripen when the seeds are fully grown, attracting animal to eat
and spread the seeds when they excrete.
Any plant variety that contains seeds is classified as a fruit, so cucumbers, tomatoes, and
bean pods, commonly thought of as vegetables, are actually fruits.
