<style type="text/css">

ul ul {

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

$(document).ready(function () {
 $('li').click(function () {
  $(this).find('ul').show()
 });
});

</script>

<body>
When you click on "Vegitation" only "Fruit" and "Vegies" should be shown. "Apple" and "Peas" should not be shown.
 <ul>
  <li>Vegitation
   <ul>
    <li>Fruit
     <ul>
      <li>Apple</li>
      <li>Peach</li>
      <li>Pear</li>
     </ul>
    <li>Vegies
     <ul>
      <li>Spinich</li>
      <li>Peas</li>
     </ul>
    </li>
   </ul>
  </li>
 </ul>

Use .children instead of .find

$(this).children('ul').show()

Your HTML is malformed, there's a missing </li>

When you click on "Vegitation" only "Fruit" and "Vegies" should be shown. "Apple" and "Peas" should not be shown.
<ul>
    <li>Vegitation
        <ul>
            <li>Fruit
                <ul>
                    <li>Apple</li>
                    <li>Peach</li>
                    <li>Pear</li>
                </ul>
            </li>
            <li>Vegies
                <ul>
                    <li>Spinich</li>
                    <li>Peas</li>
                </ul>
            </li>
        </ul>
    </li>
</ul>
