The achene is a type of simple dry fruit found on many flowering  plants. The achene contains a single seed within it and is often  mistaken as the seed itself. Other than strawberries, other achenes are  the fruit of buttercup, buckwheat, and cannabis.
Some achenes have hair-like structures that make them appear like  tumbleweeds. So, you aren’t getting annoying seeds stuck in your teeth  when you eat a strawberry at all, but the fruit itself is stuck in your  teeth. Too bad knowing this doesn’t make it any less annoying.
