Edit notice?[edit]

There seems to be quite regular edits from users/IPs thinking this is the berry (botany) article. Should we put in an wp:edit notice to reiterate that the context is "everyday language", not botany? E.g.

Probably a good idea, although it is covered in the second paragraph :-/ Qzd (talk) 06:15, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
I've added a page notice, which may or may not help. Peter coxhead (talk) 13:46, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

Strawberries aren't berries[edit]

101.166.91.157 (talk) 08:01, 6 August 2016 (UTC) The introduction says that 'some common examples are strawberries...' It's wrong. Strawberries, despite their name, aren't actually berries because they have their seeds on the outside. I can't edit it for some reason, so I can't rectify that myself. Can someone else come by and fix it? Cheers. *Edit* Nope never mind, I didn't see that it wasn't the botanical term. Still though, can someone include the fact that some 'berries' aren't actually berries? It could inform some people of the misconception. Plus, it's triggering me so hard.

This is already covered in the second paragraph of the lead, and in the "Botanical definition" section - Evad37 [talk] 08:11, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

The redirects in the article make for poor navigation[edit]

When reading the page in the section fruit by climate when you click a link to a species it directs you to the alphabetical list where you can click the link to the article on that fruit.

This is very annoying and gives poor navigation, especially on a mobile since if you want to read solely about fruits in a particular climate you end up at an alphabetical list with fruits from all climates. On a mobile / cell phone at least (haven't tried on PC yet) you then lose your place in the list which you were actually looking at and interested in, namely that about a certain climate and can't navigate back without scrolling through the incredibly long alphabetical list. Why the need for the redirects to the alphabetical list? Why wouldn't straightforward links to the actual page on the fruit be sufficient? The redirects seem to add a complicated layer of navigation that doesn't need to be there.
