Is a banana a berry?
Yes, the banana fruit is a berry. Berries are identified as being many seeded with a fleshy inner layer. So, technically a banana is a berry. And, believe it or not, bananas don't grow on trees! Originally from Asia, the "banana tree" is really not a tree in the true sense. In fact, banana plants have no wood fiber. The banana plant is the world's largest herb and a member of the lily family.

This is a question related to botany, and a good one. You need to now a little about living things and the scientific classification of them, for lack of better terminology, t…heir roots or family tree. All living things fall into different categories in order to better determine their origins. Keeping this in mind, the categories from top to bottom are,: Kingdom, Order, Family, Genus, Species. Bananas are related to Turmeric, Cardamom and Ginger (considered distant cousins, much like a human family). I'll give you a rough breakdown. Kingdom Plantae - They are all plants Order Zingiberales - Still all the same Family Zingiberaceae - Hmmm...Turmeric, Cardamom and Ginger all have the same The banana Family is Musaceae and then everything else branches out from there. So they all started from the same beginning but ended up with different families. Try to think of the way royalty works hence the very beginning listed as Kingdom. Hope it helps!
A banana is part of the genus Musa (along with plantains). The banana "tree" is actually not a tree at all - the "trunk" is just the base of the leaf stalks, technically mak…ing it a large herb. A berry (botanically) is a simple fruit having seeds and pulp produced from a single inferior or exterior ovary. (Banana's ovary is inferior, meaning tiny petals and other fruit parts appear at the tip.) This makes the banana a berry; however, berries which develop from an inferior ovary are often called epigynous berries (or, false berries). So, yes and no. :)

A banana tree is not actually classified as a tree due to the fact that it has no wood fibers. So it is actually a plant, IE: Herb. A berry is an indehiscent fruit with two or… more seeds and a fleshy pericarp, which is exactly what a banana is. This is not a debate it is fact that bananas are berries. But of course most will argue just as most debated that avocados are veggies and not a fruit which we all know now they are actually a type of fruit
it is neither it is a herb. . It's a berry that grows on an herb. Alan Davidson, author of The Oxford Companion to Food , says the word herb at its broadest can mean, …"a plant whose green parts (usually leaves, sometimes stalks) are used to flavor food." The banana leaf is used in cooking, most often as a wrap in which foods are cooked, but also to impart flavor. In that context also, the banana (plant) can be considered an herb. The banana itself is the fruit of the herb - or, in the words of Harold McGee in On Food and Cooking , "a seedless berry of a tree-sized herb related to the grasses..."
