We tackle that age-old question: Fruit or vegetable?

An apple is a fruit; on that we all agree. So is a watermelon. But is a tomato? A cucumber? Even a green bean? Are they fruits or vegetables?

They are all fruits. And here's the reason why: All of them contain seeds, which makes them a fruit. 

That's what we shared with Popsters on August 21, and after some discussion and examples, they agreed. They then had to sort various produce into fruit or vegetable piles, and their success rate was very high. Good work, Popsters!

Here's some of the info we showed them.
