 Fruit Summary
Fruits are formed from the ovary alone in many plants, but in other plants, adjacent tissues that are not part of the pistil may become part of the fruit.
Grains, or caryopses, are small, one-seeded fruits that have fruit walls that are fused to the seed and are therefore inseparable, as in corn.
Fruits may be dry in texture, such as those of the sunflower Helianthus annua, and the key-like fruits (or samaras) of the sugar maple (Acer saccharum); or they may be thick and fleshy, like the tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum), the apple (Malus pumila), and the watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris).
