  • Grapes and tomatoes are berries in the botanical sense. Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and clouudberries are compound fruits; they are not botanical berries. "The botanical definition of a berry is a simple fruit produced from a single ovary, such as a grape or a tomato. The berry is the most common type of fleshy fruit in which the entire ovary wall ripens into an edible pericarp. The flowers of these plants have a superior ovary formed by the fusion of two or more carpels. The seeds are embedded in the flesh of the ovary. However, in everyday English, a berry is a term for any small edible fruit. Most berries are juicy, round or semi-oblong, brightly coloured, sweet or sour, and don't have a stone or pit, although many seeds may be present. Many berries, such as the tomato are edible, but others in the same family, such as the fruits of the deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna) and the fruits of the potato (Solanum tuberosum) are poisonous to humans. A plant that bears berries is said to be bacciferous. In false berries, like blueberries and cranberries, the fruit is formed from other parts of the flower in addition to the ovary. Although referred to as berries in common language, aggregate fruits like raspberries are also not true berries but collections of small drupes, and accessory fruits like strawberries are formed from parts of the plant other than the ovary. As explained in below, none of these is a true berry." "In botanical language, a berry or true berry is a simple fruit having seeds and pulp produced from a single ovary. The true berry is the most common type of fleshy fruit in which the entire ovary wall ripens into an edible pericarp. The flowers of these plants had a superior ovary and one or more carpels within a thin covering and fleshy interiors. The seeds are embedded in the common flesh of the ovary. - Examples of true berries include Grape, Vitis vinifera Tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum and other species of the family Solanaceae, many of which are commercial importance, such as Capsicum, and aubergine (Solanum melongena) and Wolfberry or Goji berries (Lycium barbarum, Lycium spp.; Solanaceae). Barberry (Berberis; Berberidaceae) Currant (Ribes spp.; Grossulariaceae), red, black, and white types Elderberry (Sambucus niger; Caprifoliaceae) Gooseberry (Ribes spp.; Grossulariaceae) Honeysuckle: the berries of some species (called honeyberries) are edible, others are poisonous (Lonicera spp.; Caprifoliaceae) Mayapple (Podophyllum spp.; Berberidaceae) Nannyberry or sheepberry (Viburnum spp.; Caprifoliaceae) Oregon-grape (Mahonia aquifolium; Berberidaceae) Sea-buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides; Elaeagnaceae) - Modified berries, Juicy berries: The fruit of citrus, such as the orange, kumquat and lemon, is a modified berry called a hesperidium. - Not a botanical berry: Many "berries" are not actual berries by the scientific definition, but fall into one of these categories: - Drupes: Drupes are fruits produced from a single-seeded ovary or achene. Hackberry (Celtis spp.; Cannabaceae) Açaí (Euterpe), a palm fruit native to the Amazon region - Epigynous fruits: Epigynous fruits are berry-like fruits formed from inferior ovaries, in which the receptacle is included. Notable examples are the fruits of the Ericaceae, including blueberry, huckleberry and cranberry. Bearberry (Arctostaphylos spp.), Crowberry (Empetrum spp.) and Cranberry Lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea) Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo), not to be confused with the actual strawberry (Fragaria) Sea Grape (Coccoloba uvifera; Polygonaceae) The fruit of cucumbers, melons and their relatives are modified berries called "pepoes". [edit]Compound fruits Compound fruits are groups or aggregates of multiple individual fruits, and include: Aggregate fruits are multiple fruits with seeds from different ovaries of a single flower, such as blackberry, raspberry, bayberry, and boysenberry Multiple fruit, are the fruits of separate flowers, packed closely together. The mulberry, for example, is essentially like a cluster of grapes, but tiny and compressed into one "berry"[1]. Other accessory fruit, where the edible part is not generated by the ovary, such as the strawberry for which the seed-like achenes are actually the "fruit" derived from the ovary. Raspberries are not true berries, but aggregate fruits composed of many drupes Blackberry, of which there are many species and hybrids, such as dewberry, boysenberry, olallieberry, and tayberry (genus Rubus) Cloudberry (Rubus chamaemorus) Loganberry (Rubus loganobaccus) Raspberry, Rubus idaeus and some other species of Rubus Salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis) Thimbleberry (Rubus parviflorus) Wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius)" Source and further information:
