  1. Berry

    A berry is a small, pulpy, and often edible fruit. Typically, berries are juicy, rounded, brightly colored, sweet, sour or tart, and do not have a stone or pit, although many pips or seeds may be present. Common examples are strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, red currants, white currants and blackcurrants. In Britain, soft fruit is a horticultural term for such fruits.In common usage, the term "berry" differs from the scientific or botanical definition of a fruit produced from the ovary of a single flower in which the outer layer of the ovary wall develops into an edible fleshy portion (pericarp). The botanical definition includes many fruits that are not commonly known or referred to as berries, such as grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, bananas, and chili peppers. Fruits commonly considered berries but excluded by the botanical definition include strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, which are aggregate fruits and mulberries, which are multiple fruits. Watermelons and pumpkins are giant berries that fall into the category "pepos". A plant bearing berries is said to be bacciferous or baccate. Berries are eaten worldwide and often used in jams, preserves, cakes, or pies. Some berries are commercially important. The berry industry varies from country to country as do types of berries cultivated or growing in the wild. Some berries such as raspberries and strawberries have been bred for hundreds of years and are distinct from their wild counterparts, while other berries, such as lingonberries and cloudberries, grow almost exclusively in the wild. While many berries are edible, some are poisonous to humans, such as deadly nightshade and pokeweed. Others, such as the white mulberry, red mulberry, and elderberry, are poisonous when unripe, but are edible when ripe.

  1. Berry

    The botanical definition of a berry is a fleshy fruit produced from a single ovary. Grapes are an example. The berry is the most common type of fleshy fruit in which the entire ovary wall ripens into an edible pericarp. They may have one or more carpels with a thin covering and fleshy interiors. The seeds are usually embedded in the flesh of the ovary. A plant that bears berries is said to be bacciferous or baccate. In everyday English, "berry" is a term for any small edible fruit. These "berries" are usually juicy, round or semi-oblong, brightly coloured, sweet or sour, and do not have a stone or pit, although many seeds may be present. Many berries, such as the tomato, are edible, but others in the same family, such as the fruits of the deadly nightshade and the fruits of the potato are poisonous to humans. Some berries, such as Capsicum, have space rather than pulp around their seeds.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Berry

    ber′i, n. a popular term for any small succulent fruit, but restricted in botanical language to simple fruits with pericarp succulent throughout, whether developed from superior (grape, potato, bitternut, belladonna, bryony, asparagus, tomato), or more commonly inferior ovary (gooseberry, currant, barberry, bilberry, &c.)—thus, strictly, the strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, are not berries.—v.i. to come into berry, to swell.—adj. Ber′ried, bearing berries. [A.S. berie.]

  1. Vanessa Lachey:

    The TV personality adds that many Hollywood stars are working to stop paparazzi from snapping pictures of celebs ’ children. I know that everyone is doing a lot … Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, Angelina and Brad ; everyone is trying to do something about it, Halle Berry said. I don’t know when a change is going to happen as long as we’re a free country and people have freedom of speech, and can do what they want so-to-speak. I think we’re kind of open game. i ’m exposing them to everything in this world ; the good, the bad and the ugly and when they’re 18 I hope they don’t say, ‘ well, I did n’t know this side of things. I was never exposed to that. ’ We try to give them everything.

  2. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    The deadliest jokes of fate The deadliest jokes of fate bring unceasing laughter of madness, the aria of laughter, the great opera about a fallen world, in a gift of naivete, and the gift is ticking like a bomb. I was holding back my laughter at the realization. You will be laughed to death, all the humor of fate. Fate is thinking where to shoot a pistol now, what you most value. Are you not funny? You just don't have a sense of humor. There will be so much shock awareness that you will choke with laughter while sitting in the electric chair of awareness. You will be cunning, you will stumble upon dirty jokes of black humor. Life is a deadly fun, fasten it up, fear is the adrenaline of hellish fun. Around you are clown hypocrisy, take popcorn and enjoy acting, clown show of selfishness, circus propaganda music. Billions laugh to tears and their souls scream. This is all a test, whether you go crazy or not, become like everyone else a hypocritical egoist and go to hell, or not. People are clowns from horror films, there are few people among them. And reincarnation is a repeating joke, an anecdote that you don't understand, and the comedy will continue until you understand the joke - it's a life lesson that you can't be a naughty, they burn in hell. If you feel conscience and guilt, then you are still human. A tense solo is played on you like a stringed instrument, and the string of the psyche breaks, and all other threads with reality will break. The only weapon is absolute fearlessness and unbridled laughter, you mock at those who want your suffering. You're in the world of selfish fools' day lasts a lifetime. You're alive because you haven't finished trolling yet. Sado maso karma, you continue to sin, is it not enough for you? More karma. You get pleasure from the pain of fate. You are full of deadly surprises of self-defense, like endless scarves and sleeves, you don’t believe in the tricks of creative lies, this is defocusing. Inflation is rising, and life will be even funnier and deadlier. The comical paradoxes of selfishness create a new reality. This false reality will become even funnier, a very funny mental hospital for people is ready. Cartoon optimism of self-deception, in Russian roulette of luck and success. Repeating the same jokes (mistakes in life) you hear your echo of karma. Everything is meaningless in chaos, fate gives suffering for the sake of fun, to look at your true face. Karma is self-irony because you make it worse for yourself. Become a scar, on the system of evil. The unbridled laughter of skepticism turns into an atheist who no longer believes in egoists who want to survive at the expense of others, their vile jokes (people's lies) defame faith in people. Sects of selfishness are everywhere. Naivete paralyzes your will, taking advantage of despair. Radiation of mass influence creates a mutation in the genome of consciousness. If you find out how ridiculous (cruel) this world is, you will perish. Autism lies and optimism. All the toxins, the toxic thinking of the selfishness of the whole world, all the irony of the world will kill you, and the uncontrollably laughing madman will be resurrected. How acid will corrode your brain. 1. Immersion in reality The smile of reality opens. Entering the deep tunnel of reality, you see the most eerie forms of smiles, like the deep throat of a hypocritical snake, a corridor entirely made up of the most eerie, frightening smiles of clowns. The deeper you go, the more you laugh from awareness and understanding. And you die after going through most of the tunnel choking with laughter. And your corpse seems to be dragging something unknown, invisible by itself. There are faces from the eternally smiling dead in the gates of eternity. And the new corpse merges with her and only a dead smile is visible. And only seeing the light with an indelible smile of irony and sarcasm. Reached the end. And the gate is open. To get into the space elevator. And so we are in the space elevator of morality, with a round floor, and round walls, which are decorated with light lamps of various delicate colors, this structure leads us to a higher dimension of thinking. You see it moving up at a very fast speed. You see the light above, this is a paradise where only the sincerity of all bright feelings and emotions, true love, forgiveness, true friendship, and disinterested nobility reign. 36 Mulatochka Captivating honey caramel is like a shining dawn, life with you is like a sweet erotic dream. Juicy sweet fabulously fantastically beautiful. From your sexuality, the glasses are sweating, captured by the sexual power in your eyes, this is the amazing magic of charm lurking in them. You are my depraved temptation, dirty temptation. A sweet temptation of gently growling passion, a juicy caramel berry breathtaking in its beauty, sometimes shimmering with a picturesque overflow, delicate sensual shades of a red sunset, incinerated by the red-hot heat of passion. From your hottest, sultry beauty, the brain seems to turn off and lose consciousness from your sweetest kisses. 2. A person between anger and despondency, illuminates both sides with selfless nobility. A thought comes out of the depths, or goes into the depths, into dreams, into unconsciousness, where there are only fears, desires, and memories. The head is connected with the other world, the pillar of the beam around which thoughts move, your mind opens thousands dimensions into alternate dimensions of the imagination. A smile will reveal the true self, a smile will open the bridge to it. A crazy smile stretches to the floor, it is like a cell of the soul, the edges of the lips are connected with portals to the other world, they are also smiles twisted into spirals, a gas of laughter comes out through the teeth, in a smile a whole universe of awareness, a smile clinging to other smiles, connecting them together and pulling them outside. Other smiling personalities burst out of the face while in a special state of mind. There is a squinting third eye in the head that suspects all traitors, electrical wires are tied to the head, connecting with reality, with its whisper. In the giant smile that opens up to the world, there is a smiling powerful force, the smiling eyes of the bright side of the personality. The body and soul are torn and there are crazy smiles too, the body opens, and there is a portal to an amazing world. A smile sometimes turns into a spiral of thoughts, a person withdrawing into himself, torn away from external values, plunging into spirituality, and then circles around himself, immersing himself in his own self. Part of the body is a cloak in which other forms of mood are hidden. The body has ten smiling tails of sycophants sent by the dark side of the personality. There is a sewn-in smile in the body that wants to say a lot, it is located in the back of the head in the back there is a bag that accumulates laughter and absorbs someone else's. 3. The smile of the seer The smile of awareness, its edges pierce into the fabric of reality and reveal what is hidden from the eyes, the black humor of reality devoid of all hypocrisy. 4. The smile of a hypocrite is a mask on the floor of the face from a broken mirror, which reflects tens of hundreds of false smiles of him and those who stand and stood in front of him. 5. From the awareness of everything and everything, the smile on the face becomes wider and wider. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
