TRUTH !!
This is a very simple one: the parts of fruit plants that we eat have seeds,
while what we call vegetables do not. There are many fruits that are eaten
like vegetables (e.g. tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant) but botanically they
are technically fruits due to the presence of seeds within their edible
components. Fruits are also generally characterized by a sweet taste, while
vegetables often have neutral tastes to them.
