I don't know if I'm naive or I just don't pay attention, but all my life I have been thinking that a certain fruit is a fruit and it isn't.  It's a vegetable.


Over the weekend, Josh and I were setting around talking about stuff and we talk about random stuff.  We were talking about berries and fruit and what not and he mentioned that he saw a package of watermelon seeds at Walmart that were misprinted.  They said watermelon was a vegetable.  I mean watermelon isn't a vegetable.  How could someone make such a huge mistake on packaging.

So, I pulled out my trusty friend Google and the packaging wasn't wrong.

Watermelon. Is. A. Vegetable.

What?  How can this be?  How could I have been duped all my life?

What else have they lied to us about?

I love watermelon, but I've always known it as a fruit.  But no, it's a vegetable.  In fact, it's the official vegetable of the state of Oklahoma.

Get ready here are some other things you thought to be true. These were thought to be vegetables but are actually fruits.

Bell Peppers
Pea pods

Yeah, my mind was blown. I feel like I have just crossed into an alternate universe.
