Did you know?

Did you know that bananas are technically berries? That’s right! According to botanists, the definition of a berry is a fruit that is produced from the ovary of a single flower with seeds embedded in the flesh. So, bananas are indeed berries, much like strawberries, kiwis, and yes, cucumbers too!
