Very many vegetables are botannically fruits and contain seeds but are considered vegetables, examples are avocado tomato, bell pepper, courgette, cucumber, Eggplant and many more. Rhubarb is considered a fruit though we eat the stem. Perhaps the best definition is, if it is sweet it is fruit, if it is savory it is a vegetable.
