For as long as scientist and cooks can remember, there's always been confusion about the tomato; is it a fruit or a vegetable?

By definition, in case you thought this was up for debate, a tomato is a fruit. According to the Oxford Dictionary:

"Scientifically speaking, a tomato is definitely a fruit. True fruits are developed from the ovary in the base of the flower, and contain the seeds of the plant (though cultivated forms may be seedless)."

Which brings us to the question posed by Beef-A-Roo in Machesney Park; you'll probably never look at ketchup the same way again.
