Fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants formed from the ovary after flowering. Fruits are the means by which angiosperms disseminate seeds.

One of the organs that remains on the plant after pollination and fertilization is the ovary. Within the ovary, the developing embryo produces special chemical substances that stimulate the young ovary.

These substances also signal the start of the formation of the fruit, which is a mature ovary, the fruit may contain one or more seeds.

During fruit formation the ovary increases in size while ripening or maturing. A true fruit is formed from the ovary of a flower after fertilization.

Fruit it has two scars(style scar and stalk scar) and contains seeds. Some seeds are not formed from the ovary of a flower and some other parts of a flower develop to form a fruit, such fruits are called false fruits.
