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.
