Well aware of it. It's the fruit of Lycopersicon esculentum, to be exact. With the exception of potatoes, nearly all the "vegetables" we harvest from solanaceous plants are the fruit thereof. Ditto cucurbitaceous plants, although the seeds of many of these are also harvested and eaten. When we eat legumes or grasses, we're atually eating the seeds, and with other plants, we eat the tubers or roots. If ya really wanna split hairs, the only real "vegetables" out there are probably crucifers, asters, goosefoot and few edible flowers such as nasturtium.
