The small bright, juicy, red strawberry, scientific name Fragaria ananassa, rumored to be berries like blackberries and raspberries, aren’t true berries in the botanical sense because they are derived from a single flower with more than one ovary, as opposed to true berries, which are derived from a single flower and an ovary with several seeds. Blueberries, gooseberries, cranberries, grapes, tomatoes, bananas, and peppers are examples of real berries.

Strawberries are said to fight cancer, increase immunity, improve eye and brain health, and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, among other advantages. They are high in vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. Strawberries also serve as a low-calorie meal, which aids in weight loss. Strawberries are also a standout as one of the season’s first fruits.
