In a world that needs to eat more vegetables, I’d say we can all celebrate by adding more greens, reds, oranges, etc. to our plate today, and every day. Vegetable facts don't end with them just being 'good for your health,' turns out that they are much more interesting. And if using the word sequence 'fun facts about vegetables' with 'fun' and 'vegetables' in one sentence seems improbable to you, we might just prove you wrong.

To make your veggie consumption more bearable, here are some unexpected facts about vegetables illustrated by Captain Scoop that will get you thinking twice about what you’re adding to your colorful dish. Did you know, that tomato is actually a fruit and not a vegetable? Consequently, ketchup is not a condiment, but really a jam? Or that you can dye your hair with beets? And the cool fact that mushrooms have their own immune systems? I bet you didn't and there are many more interesting facts about vegetables waiting for you below. Maybe after this vegetable trivia list, you wouldn't be so tormented about seeing some broccoli or cauliflower in your plate.

That's nonsense. Pumpkins came to Europe from the Americas when the Spanish brought them here (I live in Europe). The American natives have always eaten pumpkins and the like..
