Fruits are defined in general terms as “the portions of plants which bear seeds”. Such a definition includes true fruits such as citrus, false fruits such as apples and pears, and compound fruits such as berries. The definition includes tomatoes, olives, chilies, capsicum, eggplant, okra, peas, beans, squash, and cucurbits such as cucumbers and melons although, for culinary purposes, a number of these fruits are classified as vegetables. For the purpose of the current chapter, tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, and melons will be considered fruits whereas egg plant, okra, peas, beans, squash, chilies, and capsicum will be considered as either vegetables or spices.
