Fruits in taxonomy are mainly classified according to their development from different parts of a flower and their texture. Here are the main types: 1. Simple Fruits: They develop from a solitary ovary of a singly flower. They further classified into; - Fleshy Fruits: Such as berries (grapes, tomatoes), drupes (peaches, cherries), and pomes (apples, pears). - Dry Fruits: They are further grouped into Dehiscent (split open at maturity, example, legumes, poppy) or Indehiscent (do not split open at maturity, example, sunflower seeds, nuts). 2. Aggregate Fruits: They develop from several ovaries in a single flower. Examples are strawberries, raspberries, blackberries. 3. Multiple Fruits: Also known as composite fruits, they develop from several flowers in an inflorescence. Examples are pineapples, figs, and mulberries. 4. Accessory Fruits: They include tissues other than those derived from the ovary. The apple is an example of an accessory fruit. Therefore, the types of fruit are grouped depending upon the plant from which they come and the manner in which they are formed. It's essential to note that taxonomy is a complex field that involves more than just general types, with specific genera and species having unique variations.
