Taking account of this classification, let’s take a look at common fruits that are believed to be vegetables.

1. Eggplants

They have seeds, they have a fleshy texture, and yes, they are a fruit.

2. Pumpkins

Fall’s most preferred food is, contrary to what you would expect, a fruit. A sweet and delicious one.

3. Peppers

We could have sworn they were a vegetable, but they are a fruit, too.

4. Tomatoes

Tomatoes have every characteristic of a fruit: they have a soft and juice flesh and they contain seeds.

5. Avocadoes

They grow in trees and they are unanimously considered a fruit.

It seems that the notion of a fruit salad may be a totally different concept from the usual.
