Why is a banana considered a berry?


2 Answers

A berry is technically defined as coming from a single flower with a single ovary. The entire ovary becomes fleshy and can contain one to many seeds. This includes grapes, tomatoes, and kiwis. Technically, a banana is also a berry, while strawberries and blackberries are not.

Bananas develop from a single flower with one single ovary, have a soft and sweet middle, and contain one or more seeds. Therefore, they fulfill the requirements of botanical berries. Hence bananas are considered berries.
