We have believed that fruits are sweet and vegetables are green and not juicy at all. This topic creates confusion, for example, the debate generated by whether the avocado is a fruit or vegetable.

Fruits originate with the fertilization of the ovule of the flowers, whose fruit is the natural widening of the ovary that surrounds and protects the seed. For example, tomato, chili, cucumber, avocado, pumpkin, eggplant, and bell pepper; are fruits.
Vegetables are parts of the plant, such as the root, stem, or leaves, which are commonly consumed in salads or as an accompaniment to a dish, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, radishes, asparagus, spinach, onions, cabbage, broccoli, garlic, beans, broad beans, among others.

It arises as an effect of the fertilization of a compact inflorescence. These are in a formation where the fruit is next to another so that together equals a whole fruit, for example, pineapple, strawberry, blackberry, fig, grapes, pomegranate, etc.
