Is a pumpkin a fruit or a vegetable?

Report as

Technically speaking, It is a fruit because a pumpkin is a fleshy plant that has seeds in it and comes from a flower... It is from the gourd family.

Ok peppers have seeds, corn is a seed, cucumbers have seeds. Are those fruits then too? I think not.
Report as
Wrong. Peppers and cucumbers are fruits. Corn is a grain, in the grass family, as is wheat, rice, barley, and rye to name a few.

Ok so like everything with seeds is a fruit? So really there's no such thing as vegetables then since pretty much every plant has seeds.

A pumpkin is classified as a fruit - a squash fruit that grows on a vine as a gourd.
