Strawberry is sweet and eaten raw just like any other fruit. Why do botanists call it a false fruit?

In most of the plants, by the time fruit develops from the ovary, other floral parts degenerate and fall off. However, in case of strawberry, thalamus also contributes in fruit formation. So, it is called false fruit.
