About This Quiz

We all know the importance of eating your fruits and vegetables. The vitamins and minerals you ingest can help fight diseases like cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Interestingly enough, many of us call fruits (like cucumbers) vegetables and vice-versa. A definition or two can help.  Fruit is the sweet and fleshy product of a tree or plant, it contains seeds and is edible. Vegetables are usually grouped according to the portion of the plant that is eaten, such as leaves, stem, roots,  tubers, bulbs, and flowers. In other words, a vegetable doesn't have to include the seeds. 

And don't worry, we will call berries a "fruit," Even though they are not botanically defined as a fruit. Berries are known as “aggregate fruits,” since they are made up of lots of little fruits. But for purposes of this quiz, if you're deciding on a berry, consider it a fruit, not vegetable. 

Lastly, we do want to warn you that the answers may be a bit surprising. So don't feel bad if you need to go through a few wrong answers to start catching on and getting the answers correct. It a fun-filled salad of a quiz. Dig in now!
