Tomatoes

"Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to use it in your fruit salad." - Miles Kingston

Yes, tomatoes are fruits, but they have a lot of vegetable-like qualities, and are often called a culinary vegetable, hence the confusion. Tomatoes are well known for their lycopene content, an antioxidant which helps fight free radicals; lycopene has also been linked to helping skin protect itself against harmful UV rays.
