      I’m very comfortable treating tomatoes as a fruit.

      But then when I was a kid sometimes [very occasionally] after we went strawberry picking, we would have strawberry shortcake for dinner! [main course – not the dessert]
      So maybe that warped my attitude to food classification.

      I like tomatoes, so I’d be happy to eat them in any way!
