Tomato is a fruit. Fruits have seeds, vegetables do not. Simple as that. The confusion can now end.

Peppers have seeds, as do cucumbers. There are SOME vegetables that have seeds, but as a rule they generally don't.

Ahem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato. You only have to get 4 lines in for the explanation-- "While it is botanically a fruit, it is considered a vegetable for culinary purposes..." and by the US Supreme court, as the importing of vegetables is taxed, whereas fruit is not.

@ plattitude has the right of it. Fruit and vegetable aren't mutually exclusive categories.

Many vegetables have seeds. They are botanically fruits, but in culinary and nutritional terms are vegetables. See tomato, cucumber, soy bean, sweet corn, etc.

Not as simple as that. To a botanist, tomato is a fruit. To a cook, tomato is a vegetable. It depends on your criteria, and neither answer is correct in all cases.

In that case, is it a taste thing? If it doesn't taste sweet, people regard it as a vegetable?

Well that doesn't explain Pumpkin. In Australia it is purely a vegetable but in the US it is eaten as a sweet!

You're half right. The tenderloin makes up the "smaller" half of the T-bone.

Both T-bone steak and Porterhouse have fillet (tenderloin) attached, but for a T-bone Steak to be called a Porterhouse the fillet section must be 32mm or more at its widest point.

Good quiz but it's debatable if a filet is the highest quality cut. The most tender perhaps but a rib-eye or a New York are much more prized by those who know their steaks. It really depends on the type of cow,how it's been raised,what it's been fed,etc. I worked at the "Palm" for years. Okay, I'll step down from my soapbox. But Mr. Bourdain would agree with me

According to Wikipedia, and example of an Italian desert would be the Accona Desert, which doesn't start with T. Maybe you mean "dessert?"
