Bananas are berries, scientifically speaking

The banana is scientifically classified as a berry, whereas the strawberry is not. 
Berries are simple fruits stemming from one flower with one ovary and typically have several seeds. Bananas meet these criteria, so do eggplants, grapes and oranges. Also: the banana tree is actually the world’s largest herb. Mind is blown, right?

Genetically related

We share about 50% of our DNA with bananas. Many of the “housekeeping” genes that are necessary for basic cellular function, such as for replicating DNA, are shared between many plants (including bananas) and animals.
