Fun Fact Friday: Berries

This is crazy………

Watermelons and avocados are berries; strawberries are not.

I know.

Here’s why:

*A berry, by definition, is a fleshy fruit produced from a single ovary; which puts watermelon and avocado in the berry family.

*Strawberries are “accessory fruits”; which means the seeds come NOT from the ovaries but from the receptacle in which the ovaries are found.

Who Knew!

Happy Friday everyone!
Thanks for reading.
