April Fools Quiz (OT)

Can you tell a phony April Fools story from the truth? These appeared in an April Fools quiz:
15: Carrots reclassified as a fruit In 1979 officials in the European Union confirmed what many have long suspected: that carrots are not, in fact, a vegetable, but are actually a variety of fruit. The officials urged that appropriate reclassification efforts should begin at once.
16: Purple Carrots For those yearning to add a colorful splash to their meals, a British supermarket announced last year that it will soon be selling purple carrots. The store hopes that the new offering will appeal to fickle children who have grown bored by the orange variety.

15: Carrots reclassified as a fruit (True ) Bureaucrats in the European Union did classify carrots as a fruit in a 1979 directive, apparently because the Portuguese use carrots to make jam, and anything used to make jam, in their eyes, must be a fruit.
16: Purple Carrots (True ) In 2002 Sainsbury began marketing purple carrots. But carrots have actually come in purple varieties for thousands of years. The orange ones are the newcomers, bred to be that color in the 1500s by Dutch growers paying homage to their royal family, the House of Orange.
