    Juicy, colorful and refreshing tomato is probably the most well-known fruit on this list. Tomatoes are actually fruits. They develop from the ovary located at the base of the flower, and also contain the seeds of the plant.

  2. 2 Bell Peppers

    Bell peppers are actually fruits and only 9% got this right. The bell pepper is the only member of the Capsicum family that does not produce capsaicin which is known to cause a burning sensation. 

  3. 3 Cucumber

    Cucumber is a widely cultivated plant in the gourd family, Cucurbitaceae. Cucumbers are a favorite food of many. They are nutritious and help keep you healthy. It’s green and certainly looks vegetabley, but the seeds mean the cucumber is in fact a fruit, which was correctly identified by 32% of those surveyed.

  4. 4 Eggplant

    Credit

    Kind of looks like a Brinjal, so you can probably guess that it’s a vegetable.  If you cut open an eggplant and look closely, it contains several tiny seeds embedded in its flesh which makes it a berry and not a vegetable.

  5. 5 Corn

    Credit

    Really a fruit, Corn is known as “Maize” and considered as a grain in many parts of the world. But since we’ve got our facts cleared, you can say that their seeds are outside. So, they’re fruits.
