Yes, but it not relevant. This phrase is not any less silly than the others

That's right. It is a fruit. Everyone knows that.

tomatoes are botanically fruits, but we're talking about food. Therefore, a culinary definition is needed. And tomatoes are vegetables when it comes to food. The word "fruit" has multiple meanings. It's best not to confuse them.

Please stop discussing whether a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable. No one cares. It's about learning Italian!
