The difference between knowledge and wisdom... Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

Why was quả chuối marked wrong

Is tomato a fruit?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tieng14Daniel

In scientific terms it is a fruit, while in culinary terms it is more of a vegetable.

Well! In Vietnam, we usually say tomato is a vegetable, not a fruit! But we still use "quả" for tomato! (Quả cà chua)

Lol, tomato is always a fruit (botanically). However, people consider it a type of vegetables because it is mostly used in salads and/or soup.

Not certain why trai chuoi is considered wrong in this sentence.
