Did you know that rhubarb is often mistakenly considered a fruit, but it’s actually a vegetable? In the United States, a New York court ruled in 1947 that rhubarb should be classified as a fruit for tariff purposes because it’s typically used in desserts. However, botanically, rhubarb is indeed a vegetable, as it’s the stem of a perennial plant.
