Fragaria × ananassa
Botanically speaking, the garden strawberry is not actually a berry. It is an aggregrate accessory fruit, or false fruit made up of achenes, which are often mistaken for seeds. An aggregate fruit forms when several ovaries in a single flower merge, unlike a simple flower that only contains one ovary. Each achene represents one of the flower’s ovaries and contains the actual seed inside. This piece featuring the Fibonacci pattern of the strawberry’s achene was created in Illustrator using vector shapes.
