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.

no banana is not a berry but, it IS a fruit. most berries are easily found because their names end in "-berry" fruits such as: strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry etc.


The botanical definition of a Berry is "Any fruit that has its seeds enclosed in a fleshy pulp, for example, a banana or tomato." So, a tomato is a fruit which is also a berry

A banana is a berry that grows on a tree. We consume the fruit of the banana tree, and is considered a major food staple in many countries as the caloric equivalent of a potato. The leaves are used in making baskets and in cooking as vessels.


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 making 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. :)

Originals: Cherry Raspberry Grape Orange Chocolate New Flavors: Blue Raspberry Green Apple Lemon Lime Watermelon Pomegranate Banana And I think they are making a strawberry.

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..."
