Same as we use. Anything on a tree is fruit, wheat etc is grain. Tomato and other "fruits" are counted as vegs since they don't grow on trees.

This comes from Rambam - Laws of Kilaim. Chap 5 Halacha 4. Only grain and vegs are forbidden. Anything else is ok. mechon-mamre.org/i/7105.htm

1. אין אסור משום כלאי הכרם, אלא מיני תבואה ומיני ירקות בלבד. אבל שאר מיני זרעים, מותר לזורען בכרם; ואין צריך לומר, שאר אילנות.

That means that it only counts if you you plant them in one go.

3: From Tambam : ואינו לוקה משום זורע כלאי הכרם עד שיזרע בארץ ישראל חטה ושעורה וחרצן במפולת יד

2. I was tring to point out that if they do grow there by themvles then it is ok as long as you remove them when you find them. This, of course, applies to other things and not to mushrooms since mushrooms are not considered a plant.

comment Standing up for Hagbah
I know it is in Hebrew but the gist of what he is saying is that it is an old minhag that appears in "Mesechet Sofrim". It says there that we do "because it is a miztvah for all (men and women) to see the words, read them and bow and then say 'vezot hatorah ...'".
