I Wonder...

 Have you ever wondered why avocados are considered a vegetable. If it was a vegetable wouldn't it not have a pit (seed)? What about cherries? They have a pit! Tomatoes are thought of to be a vegetable but they really aren't! Avocado is actually a pear-shaped fruit in the family Lauraceae. Avocados were initially cultivated in South America from where they migrated to Mexico. Common varieties of avocados include fuerte, gwen, hass and pinkerton. Others are reed and zutano. The definition of a fruit is any fleshy part of a plant, other than the above structure, that supports the seeds and is edible which makes bell peppers and tomatoes a fruit! Comment what your opinion about this topic is.
