Berries are small fruits that are usually round, juicy, and bright in color. Many berry species are edible, but some are not. They don’t have a pit or stone, unlike peaches or plums, so you can eat them easily. However, they may have pips and seeds that can usually be consumed with the pulpy part of the berry. The taste of a berry can be sour, tart, sweet, or a mixture of all these. Many berries are also a great source of Vitamin C, along with being good for our skin and oral health. Plus, they’re usually allowed in even the strictest diets–especially the popular keto lifestyle.
Some berries are quite common, such as strawberries and cranberries. There are also many exotic berries worth trying, both for the different flavors and the nutrients they give to our bodies. For health enthusiasts and fruit lovers, it’s good to know more about berries.
