In before someone tries to be deliberately obtuse and say Tomato is a fruit instead to you
Well according to that silly classification, peppers are also fruit so don't try to correct me only. Complain to the OP as well.
Anyway, they can try to be smart asses and say what they want, but from the culinary point of view Tomato is a vegetable to me and all reasonable people. Seeds or no seeds. What is next? Someone will try to claim that, cucumbers, squash, green beans and pumpkins are also fruit.
Also, it is hard to argue against US supreme court:
Are Tomatoes Fruits or Vegetables? | Wonderopolis
In the 1893 case of Nix v. Hedden, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that, for purposes of the Tariff Act of March 3, 1883, tomatoes are vegetables.
And at the end, don't want to make people of New Jersey angry and sad:
Members of the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee on Monday approved a measure designating the Jersey tomato as the official state vegetable.
