If an edible part of a plant comes from the flower (ovary), it is a fruit.
If it comes from any other part of the plant, it is considered a vegetable.
Therefore, from a botanical standpoint a tomato is not “both a fruit and a vegetable.” as is commonly stated.
Nuts that come from the flower are fruits.
This includes filberts, pecans, chestnuts and walnuts.
Others, that are not true nuts, but are actually seeds,
are Brazils, cashews, almonds, and peanuts.
