Types of Fruits

by Ju Kim and Jr Meza

Simple Fruit

dry or fleshy, results from ripening of a simple ovary in a flower with one pistil.

Aggregate Fruit

A fruit that develops from the merger of several ovaries that were separate in a single flower.

Multiple Fruit

fruiting bodies formed from a cluster of fruiting flowers, the inflorescence. Each flower in the florescence produces a fruit, but these mature into a single mass in which each flower has produced a true fruit. After flowering the mass is called an infructescence.

Accessory Fruit

An accessory fruit is a fruit in which some of the flesh is derived not from the ovary but from some adjacent tissue exterior to the carpel.

Compare and Contrast

All of these compare by all of them being fruits and growing from a specific plant. Also they compare by all being edible. Simple fruits are different from the rest by having a simple ovary, while aggregate develops from several ovaries. Multiple fruit are formed from a cluster of flowers while the accessory fruit is not derived from the ovary but from some adjacent tissue exterior to the carpel.
