Fruit, in botany, is a part of the seed-bearing structure in various flower plants, also named angiosperms, formed from the ovary after blossoming. Fruits are those with fleshy seed structures of plants that are either sweet or sour and are yet edible in their raw state, such as apples, bananas, grapes, lemons, oranges and strawberries. In saying this, in botanical usage fruits can come in various structures that are not commonly known as ‘fruits’ such as bean pods, tomatoes and wheat grains. The section which produces spores is too called a fruiting body.
Many fruits, including those that are fresh, like apples, kiwi, pear or mango, are commercially valuable as human food, eaten in several different ways like either fresh or as jams, marmalades and other preserves. Fruits can also be used in manufactured foods such as cakes, cookies, ice cream, muffins or yogurts or can also be used in beverages like fruit juices and alcoholic beverages. Fruits can be considered as gifts when in the form of a fruit basket or fruit bouquets.
