Did you Know? Technically, bananas are berries and strawberries are not!
Bananas, cucumbers, and kiwis are all considered berries, whereas strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries are not. According to Stanford Magazine, to be considered a berry in the botanical sense, the fruit must come from one flower with one ovary and typically have several seeds. Raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries do not count because they are produced by a single flower with multiple ovaries.
