“Strawberry is the only fruit with its seeds on the outside”

Why are some fruits’ seeds on the outside (e.g. strawberries) but most are on the inside?

So what is different about strawberries? They are accessory fruits. The tasty bit is not made from the ovary pericarp. It develops from the receptacle, which is the part that holds the flower in place. The “seeds” you see on the outside are actually achenes, you can think of them almost like the casing of a nut, the seed is protected inside.

Strawberries really just said “fuck it, seeds on the outside”

Technically, strawberries are not a berry. The fruits are actually what most people call the seeds. It is a multiple-fruit. So, the seeds are on the inside of tiny fruits embedded in a fleshy receptacle.
