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.
Thick part of the pistil, where it joins the stem. It contains ovules, which when fertilized, becomes the seed.
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).
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.
Ovary The swollen basal portion of a pistil; the flower part containing the ovule(s) or seed. Overcropping (grape) The production of more crop than the vine can bring to maturity at normal harvest time.
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 ...

An ovary contains from 260-375 ovarioles. A queen may lay 1500 eggs per day, which means approximately 5 eggs are produced per ovariole per day.
If an egg is fertilized by one of the sperm stored in the spermatheca, the offspring will be female.
Style - the elongated stalk or neck connecting the ovary with the stigma.
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.
The majority of flowering plants produce 'perfect' flowers, meaning that each flower contains male (stamen, anther and pollen) and female parts (stigma, style, ovary and ovules), as well as other important flower elements.
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 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 ovary and stamens are held atop a tall, distinctive stalk which is encircled by delicate filaments. The stigmas start out high above the anthers and slowly bend backwards to come closer for pollination.
Botanically speaking, a fruit is a fertilized ovary of a flower, containing seeds protected by a fleshy cover.
A modified leaf bearing a single ovary.

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.
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.
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.
Germinate - To cause to sprout; when a plant begins to grow and put out shoots
after a period of dormancy.
pericarp The fruit wall; derived from the ovary wall.
pericycle A root tissue giving rise to branch roots.
permeability The rate at which water moves through the soil.
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.
Pericarp- The wall of a ripened ovary (fruit) that is homogeneous in some genera and in others is composed of three distinct layers, exocarp, mesocarp, and endocarp.

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.
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).
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.
GYMNOSPERM (Non Flowering Plants): produce naked seeds that are only partially enclosed by tissues - conifers being the largest family.
ANGIOSPERM (Flowering plants): produce a covered seed in an ovary a protected chamber that forms part of ...
Though commonly thought of as a vegetable, the tomatoes we eat are actually the fruit of the tomato plant, a short-lived perennial usually grown as an annual. Like most fruits, they develop from the fertilized ovary of the flower and contain the ...
