Is a cucumber a vegetable or a fruit?
Cucumber is a fruit
Cucumber is a fruit because it has seeds. All fruits have seeds
and all veggies have no seeds. Also zucinni and pumkins are also
fruit because they have seeds. That is also why tomato's are
fruits, they have seeds too lol.

Is a pickel a fruit or a vegetable?
A pickle is just a pickled cucumber. And, Scientifically, a cucumber is a fruit. So, a pickel is a pickled fruit. A pickle, or pickled cucumber, is both a fruit and a vegetable. Botanically speaking, a cucumber is the fruit of the cucumber plant and a pickle is therefore a pickled fruit. But don't try to add it to a fruit salad because, as a food, cucumbers and pickles are considered to be vegetables.
