Some fruits that start with the letter "V" are vanilla and Victoria plums. In botany, a fruit is defined as a structure that grows from the ovary of a flowering plant. It makes a protective enclosure for the seed and aids in its dispersal.
A fruit is broadly categorized into three main classes according to the number of ovaries and flowers required in fruit development. The three primary types of fruit include simple fruits, aggregate fruits and multiple fruits. Simple fruits are the products of an individual flower's matured ovary. Aggregate fruits develop from multiple ovaries in a single flower, while multiple fruits are produced from the ovaries of multiple flowers.
