Vegetables and fruits are not real, per se. They are simple categories we made up, but are never simple to define. No definition is perfect and that is because it is not always certain how to define a particular ground-grown food item with the same principles as others. Therefore, it could be based on dietary cultures, beliefs, and other social variables.
In conclusion, vegetables and fruits are simply a construction you follow constructed by the society you live in.

There's a funny answer for this because cucumbers (and the other foods I brought up earlier like pumpkins and tomatoes) are kinda both in a sense. Botanically they're considered fruits but culinary they're considered vegetables.

The old meaning of vegetables referred to all parts of a plant that was edible: flowers, leaves, stems, roots, seeds, and yes even the fruit.

But to quote good ol' Wikipedia, it delves into the differences between fruits and vegetables a bit:

Many common terms for seeds and fruit do not correspond to the botanical classifications. In culinary terminology, a fruit is usually any sweet-tasting plant part, especially a botanical fruit; a nut is any hard, oily, and shelled plant product; and a vegetable is any savory or less sweet plant product. However, in botany, a fruit is the ripened ovary or carpel that contains seeds, a nut is a type of fruit and not a seed, and a seed is a ripened ovule.

When you eat a fruit, the plant grows more while when you eat a vegetable you eat the plant itself. If you want more apples then the tree will grow more but if you want more carrots then you have to grow an entirely new carrot.

This is one of the reasons Fruitarians exists. If you want to go the most extreme route of not wanting to kill anything.
