But tomatoes are a fruit although they had been previously miss categorized as a vegtable due to how diffrent they are to many fruits and not having a sweet taste

While that may technically be correct, you don't put tomatoes or cucumbers or green peppers in a fruit salad, so I'm gonna go ahead and just call them vegetables :)

Hey, let's not get technical here. CUCUMBERS ARE DAMN VEGETABLES. I honestly don't care if they are fruit by definition. Vegetables. Yes.

A fruit is anything that develops from the mature ovary of a flower. Since the tomato develops exactly like this, it is, therefore, a fruit. So is a peanut. Carrots, potatoes, and onions, on the other hand, are not fruits because they don't develop from the flowers of the plant. That makes them vegetables.
