Culinary fruits

Terran Culinary Fruits

In botany, a fruit is a 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 people and animals in a symbiotic relationship as a means for seed dispersal and nutrition, respectively; in fact, people and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Fruits account for a substantial fraction of Terra’s agricultural output, and some 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, orangesstrawberries,  or bananas. On the other hand, the botanical sense of "fruit" includes many structures that are not commonly called "fruits", such as bean pods, corn kernels, wheat grains, and tomatoes.

The section of a fungus that produces spores is also called a fruiting body.
