Introduction to Fruits

·         Fruit is the ripened ovary or ovaries of a seed-bearing plant
·         Fruits may contain one or more seeds
·         A fruit develops from one or more carpels
·         After fertilization in the flowering stage, the ovary and sometimes accessory parts develop into the fruit
·         In some species, fruits may be formed without fertilization i.e. parthenocapy
·         Accessory parts including sepals, petals, stamens, receptacle, pedicel, peduncle and inflorescence axis may be incorporated and become part of the fruit for instance in apples and pineapple
