ABSTRACT
Fruit, the seed-bearing structure of a flowering plant. Most people think of fruits as sweet, flavorful plant parts such as apples, oranges, cherries, and strawberries. Such foods as corn, beans, or peas are termed �vegetables.� To a botanist, however, any ripened ovary is a fruit�including a kernel of corn, a pod of peas, and a bean, as well as an apple, orange, cherry, or strawberry. Botanically, nuts, cockleburs, wheat grains, and cucumbers are also fruits.
