    seed and fruit formation Sarah2014

    how does a fertilised gamete turn into a seed and then a fruit? does a fertilised gamete of a flower turn into a seed and then a fruit?

      the fertilised gamete or ZYGOTE becomes the embryo.

      the ovule which contained the gamete becomes the seed.

      the whole ovary becomes the fruit!!

      tomato = fruit.

      inside the tomato there are 100s of seeds, each of which came from an ovule.

      inside each seed is an embryo (easiest seen in a peanut! split a salted peanut in half and look for the tiny leaves at one end!!) and the embryo came from the zygote.
