Berries and Friends

— Aaron

Are grapes berries? Are cherries berries?

Cherry sounds like berry. It’s even spelled almost the same.

Grape sounds more like crepe, but grapes certainly aren’t crepes, although, I suppose you could put them on a crepe, or a waffle or a pancake for that matter. But that doesn’t sound too great.

Anyways, both grapes and cherries are small, round, and bear the seeds of the plant, just like strawberries or raspberries. But I’ve never heard them called berries.

So are they?
