A few days ago, there were small partners asked Xiaonong: The seeds of fruits were mostly inside the fruit, such as peaches, watermelon, apples, seeds in the flesh, but why strawberry seed grows outside?
This is really an interesting question. Let’s talk about a strawberries today.
Most people think that we eat strawberries are the fruit of plants, and in fact, this statement is not rigorous. The “strawberry” we eat is made by
“Fake fruit” formed after development. As the name suggests, “false fruit” is naturally no seeds.
Where is the seed of strawberries?
The flower of strawberry is quite special, its flower drums, like a buckled green small bowl, while in its flower support, there are many fine pistils and stamens. After the stamen passed the pollen to the pistil, the subservations under the pistil were developed into a grain of small particles, known as “lean fruit.”
Those “dots” outside of strawberry If you can buck it down, you will find a seed in every “dot”.
This is a strawberry seed.
Small particles on the surface of the strawberry are lean, the interior is the seed of strawberry. The strawberry red meat we eat cannot be considered fruit, should be considered a flower.
Strawberry delicate and fragile image can be described in the heart, without a hard housing, how is it survived in a cruel natural environment?
The fruit is the result of plant evolution. Before the fruit, the seeds of the plant are directly exposed to the outside, such plants called naked plants. Pine is a typical naked plant, pine is the seeds of pine trees.
With the evolution of plants, the fruit is fruitful, and there are fruits wrapped in plants outside the seeds called quilt plants, and the fruit plays the role of the seeds to protect and help disseminate.
Strawberry is one of the quilt plants.
As early as the first century AD, the Roman poet mentioned strawberry in the poem, when strawberry was only ordinary ornamental. The wild strawberry is only a blueberry, lack of flavor, and is not a matter of now. But it is very eye-catching, which can always attract many animals “taste”.
Strawberry is difficult to digest seed, with the help of animal intestines, the spread is far.
In just more than 400 years, the people who have a favorite strawberry family have gradually developed, and the varieties have become more and more rich. So far, more than 2,000 kinds have been evolved.
It seems that it is weak, but it has become a lot of people’s heart love. In order to survive, rely on “beauty” to attract small animals, now because of color fragrance, it has become a small energy of the plant world.
