Do not confuse the two classifications. According to agronomic berries include cherries, and raspberries, and gooseberries, and other Things that in everyday life we used to call the berries. In this sense, the watermelon vines to vegetables is. And there is a clear Botanical classification. Cherry is not a berry and juicy drupe, a fruit of the mountain ash called Apple (or pear and hawthorn). But berry - pulp, many seeds, and peel. For example gooseberry. So the fruit of the tomato for agronomist - vegetable, and botany is a true berry! And the fruits of watermelon, cucumber and pumpkin really called takinami. It is a scientific Botanical term.
