A fruit is part of a flowering plant that derives from specific tissues of the flower, one or more ovaries,

and in some cases accessory tissues.

Fruits are the means by which these plants disseminate seeds. Many of them that bear edible fruits,

in particular, have propagated with the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship

as a means for seed dispersal and nutrition, respectively: in fact, humans and many animals have become

dependant on fruits as a source of food. Fruits account for a substantial fraction of the worlds agricultural

output, and some (such as the apple and the pomegranate) have acquired extensive cultural and symbolic

meanings.

In common language usage, "fruit" normally means the fleshy seed- associated structures of a plant that are

sweet or sour and edible in the raw state, such as apples, oranges, grapes, strawberries, bananas, and lemons.

On the other hand, the botanical sense of "fruit" includes many structures that are not commonly called "fruits"

such as been pods, corn kernels, wheat grains, and tomatoes.
