The ripened ovary; the walls of the fruit. See Illusts. of Capsule, Drupe, and Legume.
The ripened walls of a plant ovary that may be more or less homogenous or consist of up to three layers: endocarp, mesocarp, epicarp
The walls of a ripened fruiting body

Fruit wall; the wall of a matured ovary.
The fruit wall which develops from the ovary wall. The pericarp may be divided into the endocarp, mesocarp and exocarp.
The fruit wall; the ripened walls of an ovary.
The fruit wall, consisting of three distinct layers; the exocarp, the mesocarp, and the endocarp.
The outer layers of wheat and other grains consisting of fibrous material, which is composed, of cellulose, hemicellulose and a nori-carbohydrate substance called lignin. The pericarp is rich in phytic acid.
The wal of the fruit, or seed-vessel.
The wall of a ripened ovary (fruit). It is homogeneous in some genera. In others it is composed of three distinct layers, exocarp, mesocarp, and endocarp.
n. (Gr. peri, around; karpos, fruit) the fruit wall which has developed from the ovary wall; sometimes used for any fruit covering.
The ovary wall; later the fruit/seed/grain wall.
The outer wall of mature fruit.
the ripened and variously modified walls of a plant ovary
the part of a fruit resulting from the ovary walls development.
Wall of a ripened ovary or fruit.
The wall of the matured ovary.
ovary wall that becomes variously modified in fruits
Fruit wall consiting of three layers: exocarp, mesocarp and endocarp..
the wall of a fruit, developed from the ovary wall.
The ripened ovary wall after it becomes a fruit.
body of the fruit developed from the ovary and enclosing the seeds.
Also called seed pot or seed vessel. The lining of an ovary which contains fertilized seeds. On African Violets, the pericarp will hold these seeds until they have matured, usually 4 to 6 months after pollination.
The fruit wall which has developed from the ovary wall; sometimes used for any fruit covering. From the Greek, peri ( peri), "around;" and karpos ( karpos), "fruit."
The Pericarp is the botanical term for the tissue surrounding a seed that develops from the ovary wall of the flower. Generally the pericarp is the fruit making body. This includes many types of fruits including nuts, but does not include a few fruits like figs.
