By definition, a berry is a fleshy fruit produced from a single seed. The strawberry, however has dry, yellow “seeds” on the outside (each of which is actually considered a separate fruit). Indeed, berries, such as blueberries and cranberries have seeds inside. However, the banana fruit is a berry for the same reason strawberries are not.
