Potato is not a fruit. Potato does have a fruit.

Rutgers has a useful Harmful Plants section of its site, which includes mention of potato fruit.

Gardeners might like the Kansas variety of gardening site (that's a different Oz to mine), or this other site which
shows inside the fruit

There's one of those odd questions around that asks if a tomato is a vegetable or a fruit. Of course it is a fruit, but is used like a vegetable. The odd thing is that there are quite a few other vegetable fruits, including Solanaceae, but the question is always about tomato(e)s. In fact, the feature fruit of the current US season, pumpkin, is another one.
Peanuts now, there's an odd little comestible if you look at how it grows.
