Originating from the IRC conversation I missed, people were surmising which
fruit they would be, some girls said Pears, Strawberries, Cherries, etc, but
the guys were saying stuff like Apples, Bananas, Pinapples, and such.

Bird was declared a Lemon.

So the question is posted: Which one would you be?

Me? I think I'm a plantain. I'm large, un-sweet, and you have to fry to me
up in some clarified butter for me to be palatable. And I'm large enough for
plenty to eat up.

Blood Orange ... unassuming exterior that looks like a regular orange, but not at all what you expected once you peel away the outer layers.

Na I just took a minute to check wikipedia because I didn't want to look like an idiot. And according to the US Gov't a tomato is a vegetable, so they can tax it. haha

Tomato: Fruit or vegetable? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato#Fruit_or_vegetable.3F)

Botanically speaking, a tomato is the ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering plant, that is a fruit or, more precisely, a berry. However, from a culinary perspective, the tomato is not as sweet as those foodstuffs usually called fruits and it is typically served as part of a main course of a meal, as are other vegetables, rather than at dessert. As noted above, the term "vegetable" has no botanical meaning and is purely a culinary term.

This argument has led to actual legal implications in the United States, Australia and China. In 1887, U.S. tariff laws that imposed a duty on vegetables but not on fruits caused the tomato's status to become a matter of legal importance. The U.S. Supreme Court settled this controversy in 1893, declaring that the tomato is a vegetable, using the popular definition which classifies vegetable by use, that they are generally served with dinner and not dessert. The case is known as Nix v. Hedden (149 U.S. 304). Strictly speaking, the holding of the case applies only to the interpretation of the Tariff Act of March 3, 1883, and not much else. The court does not purport to reclassify tomato for botanical or for any other purpose other than paying a tax under a tariff act. However, the USDA also considers the tomato a vegetable.

In accordance with the botanical classification, the tomato has been proposed as the state fruit of New Jersey. Arkansas takes both sides by declaring the "South Arkansas Vine Ripe Pink Tomato" to be both the state fruit and the state vegetable in the same law, citing both its botanical and culinary classifications.

But due to the scientific definition of a fruit and a vegetable, the tomato still remains a fruit when not dealing with tariffs. Nor is it the only culinary vegetable that is a botanical fruit: eggplants, cucumbers, and squashes of all kinds (including zucchini and pumpkins) share the same ambiguity.

So it's technically a fruit, but treated as a vegetable for tariffs.

I'd be a Tomato, cuz it's not sweet, the people who do hate it REALLY hate it, and it's confused about it's identity. Is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable? I don't know, but it's ****ing EVERYWHERE and there's nothin you can do about it.

Cucumbers have seeds. So are they fruits? Someone check cuz I'm not.

I'd be a mango. Just exotic enough to satisfy you when you're tired of the normal fruits *cough* apples *cough* bananas *cough*, yet so very affordable and convenient. :)
