Did you know?

That pumpkins are berries?

When people think about berries, it’s often strawberries, raspberries and blackberries that come to mind. However, even though “berry” forms part of their names, they are actually aggregate fruits. Pumpkins, on the other hand, are real berries, botanically speaking, and they are the largest ones in the world. They get their classification thanks to their seeds, which are separate from the flesh.
