Today I was informed by my 5 year old that oranges are part of the berry family.
Me: “It’s part of the citrus family, it’s not a berry. Where did you hear that?”
Delton: “In my science book.”
Me: “Prove it.” (Great parent thing to say – right?)
He goes and gets his book and by golly he is right. I even checked online. Man, I should read more. LOL Whoever knew?
Right from the book: Berries: Seeds are enclosed in soft pulp; e.g. oranges.
WikiAnswer: Yes an Orange is a berry.
Every Berry is a type of fruit, but a berry is defined by if it is created from one single ovary.
*The orange fruit is a hesperidium, a type of berry.*
– the tomato, also a berry.
