    A cucumber, like a tomato, is a fruit that is used as a culinary vegetable. A fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant, whereas vegetables are all other plant parts, such as roots, leaves and stems.

    Cucumber is a vegetable.

    According to the definition given by "Lôn", beans, peppers, pumpkins, peas would also be fruits. Of course, no one classifies them as fruit, so neither is cucumber considered a fruit.

      Read the question, ckngbbbls.

      "Cucumber as a vegetable salad or fruit salad?"

      The asker is clearly not asking for the botanical definition. Cucumber is always classified as VEGETABLE salad.

    Cucumber is rarely offered with any fruits but while eating lunch and dinner it's offered as salad which always makes me think it's a vegetable.

    Cucumber is a fruit, of the vine but is classified as a vegetable. However, just as tomatoes are fruits and have been classified as vegetables it's all about taxes. The import duty and taxes on vegetables is higher than these same taxes on fruit. Tricky politician that passed that piece of legislation on tomatoes first.

    Botanically and scientifically these are both fruits.
