What fruits have three seeds

Definition A fruit is the fully developed, ripe ovule of a seed plant. The fruit develops from the flower after fertilization. It consists of the seed and the pericarp. The pericarp develops from the ovary wall of the flower and the seeds from the ovule. Fruits serve to protect and spread the seeds.

The fruits of different types of plants have very different shapes and colors. According to their structure, a distinction is made between different types of fruits, for example meat, legumes and aggregate fruits.

In the case of a meat fruit, the pulp develops from the pericarp and the seeds from the ovule. The pulp surrounds the seed and together with it forms the fruit. An example of meat fruits is pears. In the case of a legume, the fruit pod is created from the pericarp. A free space is formed between the fruit pod and ovule. The bell pepper, for example, is a legume. In collective crops, several flesh bodies, each containing seeds, develop on the ovary. The blackberry is an example of a collective fruit.

Many plants develop fruits that are edible for animals and humans. The fruits are consumed as food and digested. The seeds remain undigested and are later excreted. In this way, many plants ensure their spread by spreading outside of the home. Other plants produce fruits for self-propagation. The fruits open automatically and release the unprotected seeds. For example, the poppy is a plant that self-sows.
