I am trying to find out if strawberrys and blueberrys are considered citrus fruit. My friend said strawberrys are a citrus fruit and I said they're not. So I'm trying to find out .

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!

Actually, they aren't even berries.
