Is tomato a fruit or a vegetable? That’s the question. Well, at least it puzzled the minds of my classmates. We had a great biology teacher who would answer anything related to the subject of his knowledge. He couldn’t resist to show off. And my peers used to take advantage of this.

Certainly more than papaya cut in half. It looks like it’s infested by something malicious.
And while pineapple isn’t that uncommon, when you think about it, it looks rather odd. The leaves are something that you’d expect on soccer player’s head.
This “orange tomato” is known as persimmon or hurmi-kaki, or simply kaki, among friends. It tastes like calcium, for some reason. At least to me.
