Flower ovary

Pictured above is an apple. Inside this fruit is a seed, responsible for what constitutes the “meat” of the apple, is found. This seed is the lower portion of the pistil, a part of the female reproductive system of a flower, called the ovary. Here the ovary produces ovules, which in turn when they are fertilized, produce fruit, like an apple or a pear.
