Merriam-Webster defines "fruit" as "the usually edible reproductive body of a seed plant." Most often, these seed plants are sweet and enjoyed as dessert (think berries and melons), but some surprising plant varieties with a savory flavor are also considered fruits due to their seeded nature. From eggplants, commonly seasoned and served as vegetables, to olives with their oily texture and salty flavor, unexpected fruits are all around us. 

Check out the slideshow above to uncover the most shocking fruits that are typically treated as vegetables.
