    Squash and pumpkins are also fruits, as are tomatoes and green peppers.

    I learned that in Botany this last semester during the fruit section of angiosperms. Many things are fruits that people would never suspect. And all the fruits that people call 'berries' like rasberries, blackberries, ect... are not in fact berries at all.
