Botanically speaking, the tomato you eat is a fruit. So is a watermelon,
green pepper, eggplant, cucumber, and squash. A "fruit" is any fleshy
material covering a seed or seeds.

Horticulturally speaking, the tomato is a vegetable plant. The plant is an
annual and nonwoody. Most fruits, from a horticulture perspective, are grown
on a woody plant (apples, cherries, raspberries, oranges) with the exception
of strawberries.

In 1893, the United States Supreme Court ruled the tomato was a "vegetable"
and therefore subject to import taxes. The suit was brought by a consortium
of growers who wanted it declared a vegetable to protect U.S. crop
development and prices. Fruits, at that time, were not subjected to import
taxes and foreign countries could flood the market with lower priced
produce. (A hundred years really hasn't changed anything.)
