Fruit or vegetable?

I agree with Veronica.  But, I caught something in her text, that I
think might not be true.  A pineapple is not a fruit, as it is obtained
from an inflorescence - sort of many fruits fused to form a single
structure.  Or am I wrong?  Again, the cashew-nut can be considered as a
fruit as well and not just as seed.  The cashew fruit is the swollen
pedicel, I believe.
