Strictly speaking beans and other green 'pod' 'veggies' are also fruits...
Beans are actually pulses

Well, as well as tomatoes of course. What is wrong with onions, cooking them ruins the taste.

Beans are actually pulses
Fruit - in its strict botanical sense, the fleshy or dry ripened ovary of a plant, enclosing the seed or seeds. Thus, apricots, bananas, and grapes, as well as bean pods, corn grains, tomatoes, cucumbers, and (in their shells) acorns and almonds, are all technically fruits.
This definition of fruit is very broad, and encompasses almost everything that contains seeds.


Vegetables. This includes: Root crops like potatoes, carrots and turnips
Bulbs like onions and garlic
Stems like asparagus
Leaves like lettuce and cabbage
Flowers like broccoli and cauliflower

This is because the fruit is actually the seed padding.
