    Even though we pair tomatoes with a whole bunch of vegetables in salads, they're actually fruits! This makes ''pico de gallo'' a very extravagant dish. Onion, chili peppers, and... fruit??

    Well, we do put it in pie, so this actually makes a lot of sense. Apple pie, blueberry pie, cherry pie, pumpkin pie!

    If there's anything we know in life, it's that a carrot is a vegetable. Period.

    It may be green, but that doesn't make the kiwi a vegetable.

    Really easy. It doesn't matter if it's always next to a fruit like the tomato. This leafy green is undeniably a vegetable.

    Another green fruit? Okay, BuzzFeed, now you're just messing with us. Nope! Just like the tomato, this is another food that is often featured alongside a whole bunch of veggies, but that never gets its chance to shine in the beloved fruit cocktail that make its other fruit cousins so beloved to mankind. Poor, misunderstood avocado.

    Remember that thing about the tomato not belonging in pico de gallo because it's a fruit? Well, hold the phone because it turns out the chili pepper is ALSO a fruit. Say what? These revelations have gone too far. But, yeah, a chili pepper is a fruit that comes from a tree. In fact, peppers belong to the same family and are also fruits. O_O

    Correct, green beans are also fruits and the world as we knew it makes no sense anymore.

    If we told you potatoes are also fruits, you'd probably feel pretty lost and confused. Lucky for you, they're vegetables (tuberous roots to be precise)!

    As much as we refuse to believe it, eggplants are fruits. So I guess that makes eggplant parmesan a fruit salad with cheese?? We'll leave you to decide that for yourself. Pro tip for the future: the key is whether the food in question has seeds or not. You're welcome ;)
