  • actually beans are a fruit because they are the matured ovary of a flower, which is what a fruit is...it's just served as a vegetable because it's not sweet....these are some other fruits that ppl think are vegetables; tomatoes, cucumbers, squashe, zucchini, avocados, green, red, and yellow peppers, peapods, pumpkins

  • Beans are legume that falls in to the fruit category becase of how they grow. They are NOT a vegetable at all.
