Can cucumber be considered a fruit or vegetable?

Good question right, cucumber is a fruit to me. This is because vegetables generally are supposed to have leaves and branches but cucumbers don’t have. Fruits on the other hand are edible parts of a plant that have seeds and can be in them. Anyway I consider cucumber to be a fruit.
