- Strawberries aren’t berries
Botanically speaking, berries have their seeds on the inside. An average strawberry has about 200 seeds on the outside fleshy part of its flower. So strawberries aren’t berries, but bananas are.
- Tomatoes are botanically a fruit, but legally a vegetable
In 1893 a food importer wanted to label tomatoes as fruit in order to have a lower import tax. The tax collector insisted that tomatoes be recognized as vegetables. This disagreement set off the U.S. Supreme Court case of Nix vs. Hedden where it was ruled that tomatoes will be treated as a vegetable
- Potatoes were the first food grown in space
The University of Wisconsin-Madison and NASA partnered to help create the first space spuds. In 1996 the Space Shuttle Columbia successfully grew what have come to be known as “Quantum Tubers”.
