Fruit or vegetable?

I'm not sure this is the right news group for my question, but I'll give
it a try.  My family and I have been having a discussion as to what
parameters are used to categorize fruits and vegetables.  Do all fruits
come from blossoms?  What about beans and peas?  Are nuts considered
fruits?  Are legumes vegetables or are they in their own category?

Thank you,
