An epigynous berry is a type of fruit that has an ovary that is inferior (the ovary sits below the rest of the flower parts), which is different than a true berry. As the ovary ripens, other parts like the petals or sepals will stay attached and ripen along with it. For example, if you look at the end of a blueberry, you will see the small sepals.
