    • If you spotted four, you're above average.

      and also-

    • If not, you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think of something else.

    Sorry my mistake, that was a vague reply.

    My former post was in relation to a couple of the tests I did on the initial link egghead provided.

    They were my answers.

    I don't use mac's.

    there are fruits, fruit vegetables, and vegitables.

    Same as the fruits:: egg-fruit, green pepper, hot pepper, avocado, red pepper, cucumber, tomato and zuchini. These fruits contain the same nutritious elements as the common fruits and contribute as much to your diet as the fruits we call fruit vegetables.

    But then:

    Tomatoes…a vegetable or a fruit? That is the question that has been burning in all of our heads since we came into this world. Actually, it is both. It has been recorded in history that in 1893, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the tomato is a vegetable. It all started with the Tariff Act of 1883 that placed an import duty on vegetables, but admitted fruits into the country without charge. So, a man by the name of Nix, sued to collect back taxes he had paid on imported tomatoes.

    From Home Page Nix claimed that the tomato was a fruit. He stated that vegetables are the leaves and stems of plants, while a fruit was the actual "berry" that was created. He also said the tomato has seeds, a characteristic of vegetables. Most botanists and scientists agreed with him and viewed the tomato as a fruit. They said that true fruits developed from the ovary or base of the plant, and usually did contain the seeds.

    However, on May 10, 1893 the United States Supreme Court upheld the decision of the lower courts and officially named the tomato a vegetable. So, legally, the tomato is a vegetable. Whether people agree with the ruling or not, is a different story.

    Where I live, it's still a fruit.

    I guess that makes lemons- grapefruit - jack fruit - paw paw..etc.. vegetables as well.

    Tomotoes in my garden are very sweet.
    My girl pulls the plant and hangs it in the sun for a few days allowing for them the ripen.

    Honestly, they are sweet.

    sweet and sour counts as fruit.

    Never had a sweet tomato. I don't even like tomatos.
