fruit vegetables 
Fruits of edible plants consumed as vegetables.
Picked when ripe, the seeds are removed and the flesh eaten raw or cooked; it bears edible flowers.
Derives its name from its cooked flesh, resembling spaghetti, which it can replace in most recipes.
Its smooth hard skin turns orange when fully ripe; the delicate, slightly fibrous flesh tastes of pepper and hazelnuts.
Used primarily in North America, it can be recognized by its hard fibrous pedicel; its flesh is widely used in soups and desserts and its edible seeds are dried.
The rind can be yellow, orange or green; often confused with the pumpkin, it can be recognized by its pedicel, which is soft and enlarged where it attaches to the vegetable.
