ovary
A part of a flower. Part of the female flower where the ovules (immature seeds) are kept. The ovary commonly develops into the fruit of the plant once the ovules are fertilized.

ovary -- In flowering plants, the part of the flower which encloses the ovules. When the ovary matures, it becomes the fruit.
ovule -- In seed plants, the structure which gives rise to the seed.

Ovary The ovule-bearing part of a pistil; the female part of a flower containing immature seeds (ovules).
Ovate Egg shaped, broadest below the middle.
Ovoid Said of a bud that is egg-shaped, with the broadest portion near the base.

ovary The part of a flower containing ovules that will develop into seeds upon fertilization. Along with the style and stigma, it makes up the pistil (female sexual organ).
ovule Within the ovary, a body that will develop into seeds after fertilization.

ovary
Thick part of the pistil, where it joins the stem. It contains ovules, which when fertilized, becomes the seed.
ovate ...

The ovary is at the base of the plant. The stigma is at the top, and between them is the style. So, the pollen from the anther has to land on the stigma. When that happens, the pollen germinates and makes its way down into the ovary. Inside the ovary are the ovules, which contain egg cells.

oblong Much longer than wide, with sides roughly parallel for most of their length. orbicular Flat with the outline circular or nearly circular; disc shaped. ovate Egg-shaped with the broadest part towards the base. ovary Seed bearing part of the pistil.

ovary search for term- n. (L. ovum, an egg) the enlarged hollow part of a pistil in angiosperms in which ovules are formed.ovate search for term- a. (L. ovum, an egg) having the shape of a longitudinal section of an egg; egg-shaped and attached by the broader end.

Style - the elongated stalk or neck connecting the ovary with the stigma.
Ovary - enlarged, bulbous, basal part of the pistil which bears the ovules (the egg-containing units which, after fertilization, become the seeds) attached either to its central axis or to its inner wall.

(botanical) The matured ovary of a flowering plant containing seed. 2. (horticultural) A fleshy, ripened ovary of a plant eaten for its dessert quality.Fruit setThe inhibition of a fruit to drop after a flower is pollinated.

It consists of the stigma, style and ovary. The stigma is located at the top and is connected by the style to the ovary, which contains the eggs in the ovules. After an egg is fertilized, an ovule develops into a seed.
Stamen
The male part of the plant.

Botanists consider an apple core a fruit, because it is a ripened ovary containing seeds. But by the looser definition of fruit, an entire apple (the core and the flesh surrounding the core) is also considered a fruit.

The fruit is the ripened ovary and any other parts closely associated with it, like the flesh of a berry or the hull of a nut
Definition as written by Monocromatico:
Structure of the plant derived from the ovarium, and ocasionally by nearby structures, that bears the mature seeds.

The pistil is the term for the central female reproductive organ around which the other flower parts are arranged - the stigma, style and ovary. The stigma is the sticky receptacle for the pollen, often swollen and flared in many plants..

The pistil is the term for the collective female parts -- the stigma, style and ovary. The stigma is the sticky receptacle or "landing pad" for the pollen. The style supports the stigma and is tube-like, leading to the ovary where the eggs/seeds are.

Botanically speaking, a fruit is a fertilized ovary of a flower, containing seeds protected by a fleshy cover. So tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, okra, green beans, squashes, pumpkins and all types of melons are really fruits, although we may refer to them as vegetables.

A simple, one-seeded fruit in which the seed is attached to the ovary wall at only one point, such as the "seed" on the surface of a strawberry.
adventitious
A structure arising from an unusual place, such as roots growing from leaves or stems.

Fruit - The fully developed ovary of a flower containing one or more seeds.
--G--
Germinate - To cause to sprout; when a plant begins to grow and put out shoots
after a period of dormancy.

Technically, these are not fruits; they are seeds, unprotected by ovary walls. The seedcoat has a silvery shine. It contains butanoic acid, which causes a strong odor like rancid butter once the seeds have fallen to the ground.

Pistil
The female reproductive organ of a flower, consisting of an ovary, style, and stigma

Male flowers grow on straight, smooth stems. The ovary or small, undeveloped fruit appears at the base of a female flower.

The seed-bearing organ of a flower, consisting of the ovary, stigma, and style.
pollination ...

GYMNOSPERM (produce naked seeds that are only partially
enclosed by tissues - conifers being the largest family). or ANGIOSPERM (produce a covered seed in an ovary
a protected chamber that forms part of the fruit).
FLOWERING PLANTS are divided into two forms: ...

The Exotic Fuchsia Flower
Although they look very exotic, the fuchsia flower is no different in structure to other flowers. The flower is held by a thin stalk which swells out to form the seed case (ovary). The seed case develops into a tube formed by four sepals.

To hand-pollinate, use a small paintbrush to pick up a bit of yellow pollen from a male flower (one with no ovary at its base), then dust it over the stigma projecting from the centre of a female flower (which has a rounded ball at its base, the future fruit).

In fact, many so called "berries" are not true berries at all. The botanical definition of a berry is a fruit with its seed or seeds enclosed in a pulpy pericarp (the wall or layer that develops from the ripened ovary, basically the skin and flesh or the fruit).

Use a soft paintbrush to collect pollen from the male flowers (which usually stand proud of the foliage)and dab it onto the female flowers (which tend to sit beneath the foliage and have an enlarged ovary at their base). The best time to hand pollinate is first thing in the morning.

pistil - The seed-bearing organ of a flower, consisting of the ovary, stigma, and style.
potting soil - A soil mixture designed for use in container gardens and potted plants.
processed manure - Sterilized, dried, and bagged manure. Usually sold in 40 or 50 pound bags.
