Why are fruits, fruits?

Why are fruits considered fruits and veggies considered veggies?
I always thought it was because fruits have seeds but peppers have seeds and they aren't fruit. Then I thought maybe it's because fruit grows above the ground and veggies under the ground but that can't be either because some veggies like cabbage grow above the ground.
So what is it?

  • tomatoes, cucumbers, squashe, zucchini, avocados, green, red, and yellow peppers, peapods, pumpkins are all actually fruits that ppl think are vegetables....fruits are the ripened ovaries of seed baring plants. a vegetable is a herbaceous plant cultivated for its edible parts; seeds, roots, stems, leaves, bulbs.
