Fruit Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia


In botany, a fruit is a plant structure that contains the plant's seeds. The word fruit is used only if it comes from the part of the flower which was an ovary.

The fleshy part of a fruit is called the mesocarp. It is between the fruit's skin (exocarp) and the seeds. The white part of an apple, for example, is the "fleshy" part of the apple. Usually, when we eat a fruit, we eat the "fleshy" part.
