"Mushrooms" are the fruiting bodies of certain parasitic plants. They are technically not "fruits" only because the reproductive cells produced (spores) are to primitive in structure to be called "seeds." They are definitely plants, definitely eaten (not always safely). Anyone who does not accept a mushroom as either a fruit or a vegetable within the context of this challenge will be emailed a different mushroom recipe or article daily until they repent...

I am not submitting a mushroom, although if I did I might try and try and find another one of these.

A french fruit

If you don't want to see any 'does not meet the challenge' I'd avoid mushrooms... They are, technically, a fungus... Personally, I would have no problem with it, but there are those among us that search for a reason to say 'does not meet the challenge'... Everyone plays their own game :)

And a can of worms = can of meat? I thought it = a fish for dinner :)

How many fruits does it take to change a lightbulb?

Does it meet the challenge?

How many fruits and/or vegatables can fit on the head of the pin?

and other questions unanswerable.

I think that qualifies as a meat.

I think that if the entry is too hard to determine if it fits in the category, then you can assume it was probably either shot by a fruit or a vegetable.
I just got home from work, so give me a break.

Keep Shoot'n

If you shove a bunch of peas in a blender and take a picture... well it's mushed up green stuff.. doesn't look like peas and the title would have to help to identify just what it is inside this blender.

I think the challenge is meant for people to use the form of the vegetables/fruit more so than taking a literal perspective and being technical in saying "well mushed up peas and apples IS fruits and veggies...."


A popular politcal/satirical bumper sticker out here reads "VISUALIZE WHIRLED PEAS"

I would really like to know what Drew and Langdon think of these conversations.

Drew: "Well, that description has is about as clear as can be."

Langdon: "Yep, there shouldn't be any confusion this time"

Drew: "Hey, look, there is a thread discussing the challenge topic"

In unison: "Doh!"

no no thats Bushel of Pods

We are to photograph raw produce? not cooked or other wise processed?
09/06/2002 05:42:04 PM · #14
Can of worms???

Shouldn't that be Can of Peas?
09/06/2002 04:31:12 PM · #15
Yes! I agree with you.
But, this...

I would be fine with corn on the cob !
And I liked that discussion personnaly .. talking about the challenge theme in a relaxed way .... (until monday the comments starts to hit the fan ;-) )

09/06/2002 03:03:55 PM · #17
What sterile discussion!

Bah!
09/06/2002 02:59:33 PM · #18
And what about corn on the cob? Is that a grain? I will probably judge that any edible plant material will fit the catagory.

Now, do these need to be candid? Or can they be posed?
09/06/2002 02:56:00 PM · #19
that's great Lisa ... look guys .... instead of questioning what is a pepper because of the different 'english' languages across the world .. let's talk french where there is only one language (Quebec people .. please do not show up in the next hour ;-) ;-) )

See those aussies .. they can not sleep .. they disturb the others !!
;-)

09/06/2002 02:48:57 PM · #20
I can't sleep, so I'm going to stir up some trouble :P

Broccoli and cauliflower are not vegetables or fruits, they're flowers!

Also, be careful with your nomenclature. Being Australian, I don't use the word "pepper" for anything other than the condiment of that name. The hot ones are chillies and the sweet ones are capsicums :). Also, an aubergine is an eggplant, a courgette is a zucchini, a scallion is a spring onion, a sweet potato may or may not be called a kumera, a canteloupe is a rock melon, cilantro is coriander and so are coriander seeds, cummin is pronounced the way it looks (not like "cyoomin"), and I eat pumpkin soup but not pumpkin pie.

I did not followed the link but technically the tomato is a fruit. But for grocery stores it's a 'vegetable'.

For the 'box of banana', 'grocery store' (I was thinking about a picture of a grocery store where you do not see explicitly a fruit' question .. everybody will draw the line somewhere .. but that lead to my 'eearth' question :
'Is a nasa picture of the earth' ok ? No, even if there is vegetable and fruits 'somwhere'.
By the way ... that would contain a pencil as well, something new, something old,bla bla bla ...

09/06/2002 02:26:56 PM · #22
For the skinny on whether a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable, see this link: Tomato - fruit or vegetable?
09/06/2002 02:19:46 PM · #23
So when I get a mushroom in a vegetable soup, or on a veggie pizza, I should send it back?

This is becoming bizarre!
09/06/2002 02:15:32 PM · #24
A mushroom is officially a fungus. Not sure how lienient the voters would be on that one...... photographing a mushroom might be a risk. Are you willing to take that risk?

Actually my dog eats rabbits but they eat carrots, so the nutriants of the carrot will be passed on.
