It is next to the zucchinis and eggplant at Safeway. It is a vegetable, goddamnit.

from a biological standpoint, fruit. seeds on the inside, not a seed itself (like a vegetable).

from a culinary standpoint, vegetable. like a tomato. (which is a fruit).

end
of
thread.

In Australia it's a drink. "Lemon squash" or just "squash" is the common term for what peeps in North America would call lemonade.... and what Aussie's call "lemonade" is Sprite to North Americaners.

Did my head in when I first started.

I don't think I have ever had squash so I can't even participate in this thread because I've totally forgotten what it is

The only time I saw squash was in a multilingual adaptation of Midsummer Night's Dream as the donkey's man bits. So that's what it is to me.

Squash is technically a fruit, but for cooking it is treated like a vegetable. Like Rob said.

ROB IS RIGHT EVERYBODY LISTEN TO HIM

Horrible either way. Whoever thought of turning this into food? Savages.

It's a drink.

Denmark is correct, it is technically a fruit, but as with any fruit that is not sweet, it is considered a vegetable by cooks who can't comprehend the idea of being able to cook a fruit.

Also, gourds and squashes are technically from the same family, this is true, but I think they might be different, so I'm not sure how correct that 'technical' bit of the poll is.
