Despite it's name, a strawberry is not a berry. However, a banana is.
I did not know that.
Yes we have no bananas today
So what are strawberries?
Oh, about $2.25 per pound.
OK, ready for this?
A strawberry is not, from a botanical point of view, a berry.Technically, it is an aggregate accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant's ovaries but from the recepticle that holds the ovaries. Each apparent "seed" on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the flower, with a seed inside it.
Cool. Strawberries are a real favorite of mine.
