The statement, “fruits develop from ovary walls,” does not describe the nature of fruits accurately. Fruits are the reproductive organs of plants just like the flowers and the seeds. They are mature ovaries of the plants that serve as an important factor in perpetuating its species. These mature ovaries encapsulate more seeds inside that promote germination. They are an important source of dietary fibers and nutrients that are body needs, particularly vitamin c. Through modern technologies fresh fruits can now be made into jams, juices, and jellies and can be preserved through canning, picking, and fermentation.
