Are Blueberries Fruits or Vegetables?

Foods are classified into so many categories, including fruits and vegetables, that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of which foods fit into which group.

So what about blueberries? Are blueberries considered fruits or vegetables?

Technically speaking, a fruit is the part of a plant which contains its seeds. The more strict definition of fruit is a seed-bearing structure of a plant that has a sweet taste when eaten raw.

Since blueberries actually have very small, soft seeds in them and taste very sweet when eaten raw, blueberries are considered fruits.

Actually, all types of berries are considered fruits.
