Are Tomatoes Fruit or Vegetable?

Scientifically speaking, a tomato is definitely a fruit.

True fruits are developed from the ovary in the base of the flower, and contain the seeds of the plant (though cultivated forms may be seedless).

I used to absolutely hate tomatoes. I’d pick them out off everything, pull them off of my sandwiches and if the chunk was too big I’d even slide it out of spaghetti sauce. Isn’t that ridiculous? As a mother I can see that it must have been terribly annoying to watch a child always doing that, but I just didn’t like them. A few years into marriage Cade made these four cheese stuffed tomatoes to use up a few Romas that were about to go wilted and in an effort to be a supportive wife I tried them. And I liked them. Like, a lot.

Are Tomatoes Good For You?

Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.

They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin K.

All these years of picking out the little suckers and all it took was the right combo to sell me on them forever. Now I like them in every shape and form but these still have a special place in my heart. Just cut off the tops and core, drain out any juices, season the tomatoes then stuff full of cheese.

Add a little more seasonings and bread crumbs on top and bake them off until roasted perfection!
