Healthy fruits to grow in your garden!What! Chili peppers and tomatoes?

Yes, actually peppers are fruits as are eggplant, cucumbers, and squash. Are you confused yet?

Fruit is defined as the mature ovary of a flower that contains a seed while vegetables are the roots, tubers, stems, leaves, edible seeds, and flowers munch on a geranium?) of plants… with a few exceptions.

  1. Grains are the dry fruits of cereal grasses. So, that corn on the cob you enjoy is really a fruit.
  2. Nuts are dry, one-seeded, usually oily fruits or any seed or fruit with a hard, brittle covering around an edible kernel.
  3. Just to make things a little more complex, you can add the legume family, which kidnaps the peas, beans, and yes peanuts from the fruit definition and turns them back into vegetables. A legume is a pod that splits along two sides, with its seeds attached to one of the splits.
