Is tomato a fruit or a vegetable?  If it's a fruit, where is my tomato ice-cream?

I tend to associate tomatoes as a vegetable rather than as a fruit. I am not a big fan of I'll pass tomatoes ice cream..hehe. But love tomato juice served with crushed ice.

Lovely tomato pic! :)

It is a fruit? Not a vegetable? :p

uLi.佑莉 said...

Vege :P Nice shot!

XiaoBai said...

SHould be a type of vege?

gus said...

Great shot! It's a fruit and here's your ice cream.

Lick lick.

I would say tomato is a vegetable that bears fruit. What a *kiasu* answer haha. Think it is more of vege. Wonder how Dan Quayle would spell tomato{e} with or without an 'e' after his famous 'potatoe' card? Btw on the same token is banana a fruit, a herb or a berry ¿. tQ

I don't care. All I know is that guys should take more tomatoes in whatever form, even in ketchup. It's something to do with the prostate gland which (fortunately) women have no worries of. *snigger*

Mei Teng,
Fair enough, tomato ice-cream sounds weird. I watch Iron Chef always make ice-cream out of the Theme, whether if it's a tomato.

Tekkaus, Uli, Xiaobai,
I believe the correct category for a tomato is a "fruit".

Good answer, right on the money!

Hahaha, not that kiasu lah. But it's funny reading your comment. I'm quite sure banana is a fruit. It has seeds right?

Is it really? I only know that tomatoes are high in anti-oxidant because of their red colour. I guess perhaps that's why people, especially Italians live longer :o)

Pete said...

Vegetable!......I wonder how tomato ice cream would taste like! ha ha ha!

HalfCrazy said...

Hey there!

Call me weird but I don't eat Tomato, unless it's mixed up with a bunch of other stuff, like some Spaghetti recipes. I won't bother to single them out, haha!

By the way, that is a good shot of 'tomehto'!

Bananazക said...

Tomehto is a fruit not vege ~:)Banana is a fruit but not called a banana-tree but herb.

Hit the jump


Lily Riani said...

vege to me..... becos fruit tasted sweet n nice...haahahaha

Ai Shiang said...

I would give tomato ice-cream a try :o). Tomato is a fruit.

At least you eat them in Spaghetti. Tomato is good for you because of its natural red colour.

Right on! It's a fruit. Somehow I did read that banana is a herb, how strange!

Lily Riani,
Tomato is classed as a fruit. There are sour fruits out there too :o)

Bananazക said...

Thought original spelling is tomehto? Googled on the word web results shows your blog ranked 5th among 43 for 'tomehto'. haha. tQ

gina said...

An offtopic question. Do you have any recommendations on good online resources on self portraiture? Can't seem to get the camera to focus on myself when I step into position in self portraiture. I read about setting AF on something (where you will be positioned later), switch to MF and then stand in position where you've earlier auto focused. But didn't work. My face came out blur.

Whether it's fruit or veggie, it's good for health ... great source of antioxidant and Yes, HappySurfer is right. There was a piece of news on its benefit for the men.

It's definitely interesting to find out how 'Tomato Ice-cream' tastes like.

Wenny Yap said...

Btw, I love the picture. Great shot.

Ai Shiang said...

Perhaps ages ago it was spelt as "tomehto"? Not quite sure. I thought my blog ranked 3rd leh.

It would be thrilled to give it a try?

Mei Teng,
You come up with an interesting subject :o). I thought about that too taking self portrait. I have not come across any online resources. I think if you want to use AF, you have to "lock" the AF otherwise it will focus on something else if you're not standing at exactly the same spot. Having said that, I'm still haven't tried that yet.

Wenny Yap,
Tomato is absolutely good for everybody's diet. I eat them raw or cooked.

No Body said...

Ben said...

Wow, new blog layout... bright, cheerful and cool ;) I'll classify it as fruit. I love tomato and will not hesitate to eat it raw :)
