Kingdom of Linnaeus

In the first of twenty questions, Linnaeus divided everything into three kingdoms, putting both fruits and vegetables into the Vegetable kingdom. Botanists further divided fruits from vegetables, declaring that fruits bear seeds and form from the ovary of a flowering plant, which includes bean pods, tomatoes, wheat kernels, and squash, as well as apples and blueberries. The botanical definition differs from common usage, by which a fruit is sweet or sour and can be eaten raw. Therefore, it’s not wise to ask, when playing twenty questions, whether it’s a fruit or vegetable.
