Is a pineapple a fruit or vegetable?
Pineapple is a fruit (composite) as you eat the ripened ovary of the plant. Vegetables are considered "greens" where the leaves, stems or roots are consumed
A fruit is a mature ovary of a plant that contains seeds (although sometimes plants can be bred so that the fruits do not contain seeds.) The pineapple that you buy from a store is a "multiple fruit", because it is formed from the fused ovary tissues of many flowers, rather than just a single flower. It is therefore not a "true fruit" as classified by botanists, but certainly not a vegetable.
