The seed-bearing organ.
The part of a plant that grows where a flower used to be, after the flower was pollinated and died. The fruit contains the seeds, which can grow new plants. Fruits are often fleshy with juices and nutrients for animals to eat. After animals eat the fruit, they poop the seeds out somewhere new, and the seeds can grow into new plants.

In botany, “fruit” is a ripened ovary, sometimes with accessory parts. In popular use, “fruit” is a sweet, fleshy botanical product usually eaten as a dessert, snack, or juice. Fruits in the popular sense include apple, grape, peach, pear, and strawberry. In popular use, “fruit” does not include other edible botanical fruits such as tomato, pepper ( Capsicum spp.), eggplant, squash, and green beans; they are termed “vegetables” instead.
An expanded and ripened ovary with attached and subtending reproductive structures. Genes. Basic units of hereditary material that dictate the characteristics of individuals.
The seed-bearing part of a plant.

Ripened ovary and its structures that enclose it at maturity.
A ripened ovary containing the seeds of a plant.
1. The developing or developed ovary of a flowering plant. In other words, if it contains seeds or can ripen, then it is a fruit. 2. The sweet, edible part of a plant. Is tomato a fruit or a vegetable? The answer is, of course, "yes"! I think it is silly to view this as "either-or." By definition 1 (the botanical definition), tomatoes, cucumbers, even green beans are fruit. By definition 2 (the culinary definition), rhubarb is a fruit, although it does not fit definition 1. Gardeners tend to use the term "vegetable" when referring to the plant as a whole or in the abstract, and "fruit" when referring to the part that you pick and eat. I once heard a gardener refer to a head of broccoli as its "fruit." The term seemed entirely appropriate and unambiguous in context.
The part of the plant that carries the seed; the term generally includes the fleshy fruits and berries, pod like seed pouches and nuts.
The good-to-eat flesh surrounding the reproductive body of a flowering plant. One of the greatest problems faced by plants is how to spread their offspring around. If all of a plant's seeds just fell under the adult, then they would create too much competition for water and nutrients, perhaps even squeezing out their own parent(s) in their struggle for life. Or if all of a single species are concentrated in a small area, even if there are a lot of them, they could be wiped out by a small fire, or a Seven-Eleven store, or an elephant's foot. Fruits are very expensive for plants to produce, but animals like to eat them. Usually the seeds inside the fruit are difficult or impossible to digest, so they get a free ride in some animal's gut to be dropped off somewhere perhaps miles away, complete with a nice pile of fertilizer, also free of charge. (Not exactly free of charge; the fruit is the price of the ticket).
The reproductive structure that includes the inner seeds. Mature fruits can be moist (such as the fleshy fruit of Pawpaw), mealy (such as the nuts of the Hickories), or dry (such as the wafers of the Elms).
The ripened ovary containing seeds, such as a berry or pod.
the ripe, mature ovary containing seeds.
In flowering plants, the structure which encloses the seeds. True fruits develop from the ovary wall, such as bananas and tomatoes, though not all fruits are edible, such as the dry pods of milkweed or the winged fruits of the maple.
The ripened pistil with all its accessory parts.
matured ovary of flowering plants, with or without accessory parts
A fruit is the part of a flowering plant that contains the seeds. Some fruits include apples, oranges, berries, maple pods, and acorns. Some fruit are fleshy and some are dry, like cotton (a dehiscent fruit) and sunflower (an indehiscent fruit). Not all fruit are edible. True (simple) fruits (like the tomato, coconut, watermelon, olive, lemon, and banana) develop from the wall of a single ovary. False (compound) fruits (like the strawberry, rosehip, and pineapple) develop from more than one pistil.
The term fruit has different meanings depending on context. In botany, a fruit is the ripened ovary—together with seeds—of a flowering plant. In many species, the fruit incorporates the ripened ovary and surrounding tissues.
