Here’s a little proof for you, if you don’t quite agree on the second part of Ella 76 line. Nothing screams “sunshine” as much as berries and people are going crazy about the beauty of their life cycles.
A Twitter user named Alfie shared a picture of blackberries in their different stages of life which was all arranged in a circle. The caption said: “Blackberries have cool stages of life, no?” There were about a whopping 1.1M who hit like. Then people started posting their own berry, fruit, leaf, and flower assemblages.
Berry evolution pictures are now reminding us that the beauty of nature can fit in the palm of your hand visually satisfying and emotionally refreshing.

We just think of berries as a small, squishy type of fruit that can be picked off plants. But in truth, the scientific classification is far more complicated than that.
According to Judy Jernstedt, who’s a professor of plant sciences at the University of California, Berry nomenclature is so confusing “because people called certain fruits ‘berries’ thousands of years before scientists came up with a precise definition for the word.”
In order to be a berry, it must bear two or more seeds. Jernstedt explained “Thus, a cherry, which has just one seed, doesn’t make the berry cut. They’re called drupes.”

When it feels like berries can’t be more confusing, it turns out. According to Linda Ly, a botanist and blogger at Garden Betty, here’s another bizarre botanical fact, a banana is a berry.
“During the flowering stage, an inflorescence, a banana heart, appears on the end of the stem. It is usually a long, tapered, tightly wrapped, deep purple bud.” As the buds open, “they reveal double rows of nectar-rich blossoms that make bees and hummingbirds go wild over them.”
Linda also said that “Because the fruit is produced from a single ovary on the flower, a banana is actually classified as a berry, botanically speaking.”
