Some fruit-full definition here today. A berry defined in botany (a study of plants) is a fruit in which the plant's entire ovary wall ripens into edible outside layer or skin. The seeds are embedded in the flesh of the ovary. Interesting to know, and to point out, according to this definition, the tomato is a berry and the strawberry is not. Oranges and lemons are modified form of berry called a hesperidium. In every day language, a berry is referred to all small, edible fruit that has multiple seeds. Enjoy your berries every day because of their amazing nutritional value.
