A one-celled, dry, indehiscent fruit, with a thin membranous pericarp, adhering closely to the seed, so that fruit and seed are incorporated in one body, forming a single grain, as of wheat, barley, etc.
The grain; fruit of grasses, with a thin pericarp adherent to the seed.
The dehulled rice grain.
n. (Gr. karyon, a nut, and opsis, an appearance) a small one-seeded, dry, indehiscent fruit, in which the seed adheres to the thin pericarp, so that the fruit and seed are incorporated into one body, as in wheat and other kinds of grain.
A grain as in the grasses; the fruit of a grass.
A simple dry indehiscent fruit where the seed coat is strongly fused to the pericarp. (e.g., cereal grains)
Small, indehiscent, dry fruit with a thin wall surrounding and more or less fused to a single seed.
One-seeded, dry, indehiscent fruit or grain of grasses with a lateral embryo. The seed coat is adnate to the pericarp.
mature fruit of grasses in which the seed coat firmly adheres to the pericarp
The fruit, of grasses, in which the ripened ovary wall, the pericarp, is fused to the seed coats, the testa, at maturity.
dry seedlike fruit produced by the cereal grasses: e.g. wheat, barley, Indian corn
The one-seeded dry fruit of grasses in which the testa and pericarp are completely fused and inseparable at maturity.
Dry fruit of the grains, having an adhering pericarp and usually abundant endosperm in the mature seed.
the indehiscent fruit of most grasses with a single seed, the testa (seed coat) of which is fused with the pericarp (outer wall).
A dry seed-like fruit whose pericarp (the part of the fruit enclosing the seed) is fused to the seed coat of the single seed, and which does not open spontaneously on ripening.
Dry, indehiscent fruit in which the single ovule wall is adhered to the pericarp: as seed in grasses.
The fruit of grasses; the grain or seed.
fruit of a member of the grass family; often dry, indehiscent, and with a seed-coat attached to the seed
A dry, hard, indehiscent, 1-seeded fruit with the thin ovary walls grown fast to seed coat; the characteristic fruit of grasses.
a dry, indehiscent, one-seeded fruit in which the seed coat is closely fused to the fruit wall (characteristic of grasses).

The term used to describe the simple fruit produced by grasses, including cereals.
In botany, a caryopsis is a type of simple dry fruit — one that is monocarpelate (formed from a single carpel) and indehiscent (not opening at maturity) and resembles an achene, except that in a caryopsis the pericarp is fused with the thin seed coat.
