Drupe

Postby Slava » Sat Dec 11, 2010 1:54 pm

I came across this one in a book today and thought I'd share. As much for the definition as for anything else.

Drupe -
an indehiscent fruit consisting of outer epicarp, fleshy or fibrous mesocarp, and stony endocarp enclosing a single seed, as in the peach, plum, and cherry


There is also a diminutive form, druplet:
a little drupe, as one of the individual pericarps composing the blackberry.


I'll leave it for you to look up pericarp.

Hope you like it.
