Anything that's a root, stem, or leaf of a plant, including rhubarb, qualifies as a vegetable. Fruits are the ovaries of a flowering plant that develop after its seeds are fertilized. Corn, Zucchini, Green beans and tomatoes therefore are considered fruits actually since they are ovaries and don't fit any of the criteria for a vegetable. Berries are fruits that come from a single ovary with multiple seeds so that makes grapes and bananas actually berries while raspberries and blackberries on the other hand are actually "aggregate fruits" Strawberries believe it or not are not really berries and the red part that we eat is called a fleshy receptacle and it's the seeds that are the actual fruits. My mind has been blown from watching this!
