Why do they call strawberry a berry if its not a berry?
For a while, it was mistaken for a berry, as it looks like any other "berry". The seeds on the outside are not really seeds, but they are the strawberries ovaries. Yet, even with this knowledge, people have not changed the name, for it is in our vocabulary and will probably take a long time for the name to change, if it does.

Scientifically, no a strawberry is not a berry. A berry is classified as a fruit that is entirely produced from one ovary of the plant. However, the flesh of a strawberry is p…artially created by the tissue adjacent to the ovaries thus meaning it is a false or accessory fruit and not a berry.
No Strawberries are not Berries even tho within the name it has the word berry in.
no.... its an aggregate fruit....
Technically it is an " aggregate accessory fruit ". A berry is a fleshy fruit which doesn't have a pit or "stone"and which is produced from a single flower containing a sin…gle ovary. An aggregate accessory fruit is onethat develops from the merger of several ovaries that wereseparate in a single original. Raspberries fall in this samecategory.
A berry is just is a single fleshy fruit with seeds inside. What makes a strawberry unique from the berry classification is that the actual fruits, which are informally calle…d seeds, are on the outside. The fleshy red part itself isn't actually a fruit itself. So basically a strawberry is a group of multiple fruits.
The strawberry is a small plant of the Rosaceae (Rose) family. All varieties of the strawberry plant belong to the Fragariagenus. Strawberries are not really berries or fruit,… but are instead the enlarged ends of the plant's stamen. It is the small black spots which are actually the fruit. The strawberry is considered one of the most important small fruits grown in the Western Hemisphere. Today every state in the United States and every province in Canada grow the strawberry plant. It grows both as a wild plant and as a cultivated plant. Source:http://www.ontarioberries.com/sbinfo.htm
A berry is if the entire fruit is fleshy, you would call it a berry. Avocados, blueberries, and grapes are berries. The seed must be in the inside. Strawberries' seeds are on …the outside not inside.
Strawberries are known as "false fruits." This is because the flesh of the strawberry is not derrived from the ovary but from adjacent tissue. The true fruit of the strawberry… plant are the seeds on the outside. A berry carries the seed of the plant inside the outer covering. A strawberry carries its seed on the outside so is not a berry. What is normally thought to be the berry is a large convex fleshy recepticle.
It is in a category called "Accessory Fruit" (or False Fruit). By botanical definition, a berry is a simple fruit having seeds or pulp generated from a single ovary. False Fru…it differs because the edible part of the berry is develops from the stem.
