Tomatoes are a weed? I thought they were technically a fruit.

They are, but I was really speaking on how they take over when they are not tended and how good they are when they are.

BTW, a fruit can be a weed, most definitions I know is a weed is just an invasive plant that grows where you do not want, which if you have ever seen tomatoes go untended for a year, would definitely lead you to call them a weed -- particularly with the wild tomato offspring not even fruiting.
