a dry, one-celled, one-seeded fruit, the product of a simple pistol.
a dry, indehiscent fruit formed from a superior ovary of one carpel and containing one seed which is free from the pericarp (often applied, less correctly, to the one-seeded fruits of Asteraceae). cf. cypsela.
A small, dry, one-seeded fruit, without a predictable opening ( does not split open spontaneously) and formed from a single carpel. It's usually one of many, like an unshelled Sunflower seed.
A small, dry, hard one-locular, one-seeded closed fruit with a thin pericarp, derived from a one-carpellate ovary.
small, dry, indehiscent 1-seeded fruit in which the ovary wall is free from the seed
a small dry indehiscent single seeded fruit.
A one-seeded, dry, indehiscent fruit with seed attached to fruit wall at one point only, derived from a one-loculed superior ovary.
type of fruit in which a single seed occurs in a locule and that seed is attached at only one point
A small dry hard fruit with the appearance of a seed. Does not separate. The fruits of the sedges which line North Country waterways are achenes.
A small, dry fruit that contains one loose seed and that does not split open spontaneously For example: sunflower seed
An achene is a type of simple dry fruit produced by many species of flowering plants. Achenes are "monocarpellate" (formed from one carpel) and indehiscent (they do not open at maturity). Achenes contain a single seed that nearly fills the pericarp, but does not adhere to it.
