Fruit or Vegetable?

Carrot

Is the Carrot a Fruit or Vegetable?
Botanically, this is...
Culinarily, this is...

Carrots are the main roots of carrot plants that people eat. Although sometimes they are put in delicious cakes, they are not fruits. Something has to botanically be a fruit for it to be one culinarily. Also, carrot cake is basically the only time their consumption resembles fruit’s. You don’t dip fruit in ranch dip hopefully.
