Fun Facts

Form fruits which people can eatImportant source of food and habitats for many animals

Importance

The petals attract pollinators to bring pollen from the stamens of one plant to anotherThe ovules, which are the part of the ovary of seed plants that contains the female germ cell That are kept in the carpelsThe pollen germinates on the sticky stigma of a carpel rather than the pollen chamber of the ovuleOvertime, the carpels develop into fruits, which are the ripened ovaries of the plant

Reproduction

Their reproductive organs are flowersSeeds develop in ovariesSeeds are protected by a casing called a carpelHave double fertilization
