What is Arkansas’ State Fruit?

What is Arkansas’ State Fruit?

The great state of Arkansas (in the U.S) has adopted the South Arkansas Vine Ripe Pink Tomato as Arkansas’ official state fruit and… WAIT FOR IT…. also as Arkansas’ official state  vegetable,  it all went down on March 16, 1987 and was mentioned in Arkansas’ law:

“It is found and determined by the General Assembly that the South Arkansas Vine Ripe Pink Tomato has a taste, texture, appearance, and aroma second to none and that the tomato is botanically a fruit and used as a vegetable. It is further determined by the General Assembly that Arkansas does not have a state fruit or a state vegetable. Therefore, the South Arkansas Vine Ripe Pink Tomato shall be the official state fruit and the official state vegetable.”

*Botanically the tomato is definitely a fruit , but many see it as a vegetable none the less.
