Freshy Fruits

The process of fertilization initiates both seed and fruit development. While seeds develop from the ovules, the ovary tissue undergoes a series of complex changes which result in the development of the fruit. Many fruits are “fleshy” and contain sugars which attract animals who then disperse the enclosed seeds to new locations. Other, non-fleshy, fruits use other mechanisms for seed dispersal. In some plants, fruits can develop without fertilization. This is called parthenocarpy, and such fruits are seedless. As the ovary develops into a fruit, its wall often thickens and becomes differentiated into three, more or less distinct, layers.
