It's currently at 74% vs 71%, not a significant difference.
we are not nitpickers. The problem is that people like you want to use the word 'fruit' in multible senses. We'd only like to know, which meaning you are using.
Plus, beans are fruit. So are nuts, and grains (wheat, oats, barley...).
The reason we have the fruit/vegetable debate for tomatoes but not for these other things is, I believe, because of a US Supreme Court case in the 19th century that referred specifically to tomatoes. The distinction entered the public consciousness and has never left, it seems.
But I guess in some parts of the world, outside of the US where American Pawpaw is endemic, they call papayas papaw or sometimes pawpaws. So it can be quite confusing for Americans, particularly those in the east where pawpaws grow naturally.
just a question
