Berry is a fleshy fruit produced from a single ovary.The berry is the most common type of fleshy fruit in which the entire ovary wall ripens into an edible pericarp.The entire pericarp is fleshy, although skin is sometimes tough. E.g. grape, tomato, papaya, pomegranate, sapote, persimmon, guava, banana and avocado.

The seeds are usually embedded in the flesh of the ovary. A plant that bears berries is said to be bacciferous.On the other hand,Strawberries are not berries. They actually are an example of an “aggregate fruit”, forming from a flower that has many ovaries; the ovary being the part of the flower that eventually develops and ripens into a fruit.Once the ovaries are pollinated, the ovaries will swell and eventually form the strawberry as we think of it.
As noted, strawberries form from a flower that has many ovaries. This makes them a complex fruit, much like blackberries or raspberries.


There is a theory that strawberries were named by 19th century children who picked the fruit, strung them on grass straws, and sold them as “Straws of berries”.
