There are hundreds of different types of berries. Some of the most popular ones include strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, gooseberries, boysenberries, and mulberries.

A single ovary, from a single flower, produces a fruit. The resultant fruit will have three layers: exocarp, mesocarp, and endocarp, with the seed within. The phrase "single ovary from a single bloom" is crucial. It’s why a strawberry isn’t classified as a fruit but a banana or blueberry is. A strawberry has multiple flowers per plant, so it doesn’t qualify for this classification.
Fruit is defined by its fleshy part and its stone/pit. Fruit does not necessarily need to be sweet. In fact, many bitter fruits are considered to be fruits.
Strawberry is a good example that is actually not a berry because it contains no pit at all. However, it still qualifies as a fruit since it has outer skin and inner pulp.
