FRUITS

Fruits can be divided into three categories:

1. Simple fruit

- a fruit formed from a single ovary of a single flower (monocarpous or syncarpous ovary)

2. Aggregate fruit

- a fruit formed from several ovariesof a singleflower (apocarpous) e.g. Anona

3. Multiple fruit

- a fruit formed from the ovaries of flowers borne in a compact inflorescence. The fruits unite at maturity e.g. jackfruit, pineapple


Simple fruits

Simple fruits

  • Dry indehiscent fruits

  • Dry dehiscent fruits

  • Succulent/Fleshy fruits

    A fruit : - pericarp + the seed (inside)

    - is a ripened ovary/ovaries generally

    containing one to many seeds inside

    Pericarp : exocarp/epicarp + mesocarp + endocarp

    ** Following pollination and fertilization in a flower, the ovule develops into a seed while the ovarywall forms the fruit pericarp
