    Grass is an herb. It’s the leafy part of the plant, and this is what makes it an herb. Technically speaking plants are vegetables since they are part of the vegetable kingdom. The Earth’s solids have been classified into three divisions: animal, mineral, and vegetable. While vegetables and fruit are the products of plants, plants are the propagators and considered in a different manner.

    Short answer: grass is a plant and an herb.

    Totally confused? Me too. .

    Is Grass A Vegetable

    Leaf vegetables, also called potherbs, greens, or leafy greens, are plant leaves eaten as a vegetable, sometimes accompanied by tender petioles and shoots. Although they come from a very wide variety of plants, most share a great deal with other leaf vegetables in nutrition and cooking methods.

    Nearly one thousand species of plants with edible leaves are known. Leaf vegetables most often come from short-lived herbaceous plants such as lettuce and spinach. Woody plants whose leaves can be eaten as leaf vegetables include Adansonia, Aralia, Moringa, Morus, and Toona species.

    The leaves of many fodder crops are also edible by humans, but usually only eaten under famine conditions. Examples include alfalfa, clover, and most grasses, including wheat and barley. These plants are often much more prolific than more traditional leaf vegetables, but exploitation of their rich nutrition is difficult, primarily because of their high fiber content. This obstacle can be overcome by further processing such as drying and grinding into powder or pulping and pressing for juice.

    The greens are vegetable like…. probably not too nutritious. Grass is typically thought of as grain crops if allowed to grow to full maturity.

    Both are good for you, each fruit/vegetable has different vitamins. Therefore as more variety, as better. Vegetables have generally less sugar than fruits.

    yeah, I guess, fruits are seed bearing, and grass doesn’t do that. I actually think it might be a weed, A weed with good PR. Like Madonna
