The avocado is a berry
While most people would automatically assign this tropical fruit to a vegetable, from a botanical point of view it is more a fruit. The perennial avocado tree belongs to the laurel family and thus its fruits are assigned to the berries. So the correct answer is: the avocado is a berry and therefore a fruit.
Tips & Tricks
The avocado is rich in essential, unsaturated fatty acids and therefore very healthy. However, only enjoy the pulp in its raw state, as it becomes bitter and inedible as a result of being heated by cooking or frying.
