Hi Keshu,

Thanks for asking

First of all let me make you clear about true fruit. True true fruit develops from ovary (ripened) and Yes ! banana develops from ovary.

Now coming to your next confusion.
A berryis also a fruitproduced from theovaryof a single flower in which the outer layer of the ovary wall develops into an edible fleshy portion (pericarp).

Berries are generally juicy fruits and that’s why banana is a false berry but true fruit.

Hope the answer of the question.
