As far as I know, strawberries are not citrus (they're just berries, I guess) and are actually part of the Rose family.

Strawberries are not a citrus fruit, but they do contain a fair amount of vitamin C, maybe that is what confused your friend.



Blueberries are not a citrus fruit either, but darn healthy!
