Sure, I've wrote few papers and articles about said topic. I can send them, but it'll take a while before i translate them. Some laboratory observations are 30+ pages long, and I'm not used to write in english like my colleagues, because my listners are mostly nationals, on genetics interests group I have mostly foreigners thou, but I'm not leading them usually. :)

That's way too much trouble and time consuming for you, so never mind that. If there are any links you have I would be happy to check them out. Otherwise I'll wait till those papers get widely known :)

To be absolutely honest, both versions are correct depending on a way we look at it - scientifically speaking tomato is surely a fruit, but in cooking it's commonly used like a vegetable. :)

If we only take definition into account, then tomato is 100% fruit indeed.

A supreme court should take that into account though xD
