Berries on wafflesCulinary fruits are fruits used in food preparation and cooking.
In fact, many foods botanically classified as fruits are treated as vegetables in cooking.

Cereal grains are technically fruits called caryopsis, although its fruit wall is very thin and fused to the seed coat so almost all the edible parts of grains are actually seed. Lycopene containing fruits such as tomatoes and berries release better its lycopene substance after it has been processed by heat in cooking.
