What are examples of monocot and dicot seeds?


Examples of monocot seeds include garlic, onion, corn, wheat, asparagus, and orchids. Examples of dicot seeds include tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, beans, peas, clovers, apples and celery.

Monocots are seeds that have only one seed leaf inside of their seed coat. They also have only one cotyledon. Dicots are seeds that have two seed leaves inside of their seed coat and two cotyledons. Monocot seeds germinate and produce only one leaf that is long and narrow. Dicot seeds germinate and produce two or more leaves. The leaves of dicot seeds contain endosperms for new plants so their leaves are usually fatter and long.
