WEIRD FACT: Strawberries, as you know them, are not actual berries.

According to botanists, a ‘berry’ is a fleshy fruit produced from a single ovary. Strawberries, however, are an example of an “aggregate fruit”, forming from a flower that has many ovaries. After pollination, each “ovary” eventually develops and ripens into a strawberry.

The way we use ‘berry’ traditionally, is for any teeny, tiny edible fruit, but that’s not so. In fact, according to the definition bananas, tomatoes, and watermelons are all considered berries.
