Plantenstein Is the Suspect!


From Flower to Fruit

When a plant flowers and produces seeds, it also produces something else we all like -- fruit. As you learned, when the ovary ripens, it swells and forms a protective covering around the seeds. This protective covering, or fruit, often finds its way on top of cereal, ice cream, a salad, or just a tasty snack.
