MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Is a pumpkin a fruit or vegetable?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Is a pumpkin a fruit or vegetable?

Tis the season for pumpkin everything. And also the burning question in everyone’s fall household… are they fruits or veggies?

Technically they are considered a FRUIT, which blew my mind. It’s apparently because they are the “edible reproductive body of a seed plant.”  Vegetables are the other parts of a plant that don’t have seeds, like leaves, stems, roots, and flowers.

So there you have it. When you’re pumpkin picking this year you can tell you’re kids they are a fruit.
