Fruits

This note provides information about types of fruits and seeds. Fruits may be defined as the matured ripened ovary containing seeds. It consists of two parts, pericarp that is a fruit wall and is differentiated into three layers which are outer epicarp, middle mesocarp, and innermost endocarp. The fruit which develops without fertilization is called parthenocarpic fruit. Eg: banana. There are two types of fruits: true fruits which develop from the ovary of a flower and false fruit that develops from the fusion of floral parts with the pericarp.
