n. (AS. berie, berry) any fleshy simple fruit with one or more seeds and a skin, as a tomato, cranberry, banana, grape, etc.; a several-sided indehiscent fruit with a fleshy pericarp and without a stony layer surrounding the seeds.
A berry is a small, juicy, fleshy, stoneless fruit that contains one or many seeds. This simple fruit has a pulpy pericarp surrounding the seed. Some berries include the gooseberry, tomato, currant, and grape.
The term berry, in common parlance and in cuisine, refers generically to any small, edible fruit with multiple seeds; in this sense, the tomato is a berry and the strawberry is not. Aggregate fruits such as the blackberry, the raspberry, and the boysenberry are also berries in this sense, but not the botanical.
