In fact, there are a lot of surprising things that you've probably never thought about before, and Bored Panda has compiled a list of them to prove so. Keep on scrolling to take a look and prepare to be mind blown because once you're through with it, you'll be thinking that you had it all wrong before! Don't forget to vote for your favorites.

Watermelons Are Berries? And Strawberries Not?

Watermelons Are Berries? And Strawberries Not?

GingerWizard21 Report

Kristi Zoebelein 2 years ago

This is a little too simplistic and doesn't accurately describe anything. Pumpkins and zucchini are squash but can technically be considered fruit. But then again so are beans, corn, coffee, and cucumbers. Strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries are aggregate fruits. Bananas, coffee, pistachios, peaches, and olives are drupes. Well....technically coffee is the pit of the coffee fruit....but still weird. Basically if you are eating the STRUCTURE of a plant, then it is a vegetable. Celery is the stalk, carrots are the roots, lettuce is the leaves...and so on. If the plant produces flowers through pollination, the result is a fruit regardless of what it looks like or how it tastes. Science is cool.
