The information about citrus whas before in a separate article, so it was recommended and than done, to merge them in one single article. It is important to know how fruit anatomy is expressed by all different kinds of fruits, citrus was placed because the infomation was available. Tha approach should be to invite experts in different fruit species to add the information from their expertease, so it will be more colorful. - CitricAsset (talk) 02:30, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Comparison of pericarp to bird uterus[edit]

I don't understand the relevance of this analogy. An edible fruit is the ripened ovary— pericarp/seeds—of a flowering plant. A bird's uterus is the location where the calcareous shell (and color pigment) is added. The edible components of the bird's egg (yolk + albumen) were formed even before it entered the uterus. http://people.eku.edu/ritchisong/avianreproduction.html

I think it'd be more helpful to readers if the article focused directly on fruit, rather than on birds. --NinetyNineFennelSeeds (talk) 02:24, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Removing section: Endopericarpal layer[edit]

When I search the internet for "endopericarp" or "endopericarpal layer," I get extremely technical papers and quotations from this Wikipedia page. I don't think it is necessary to mention it in this article. Leopoldhausen (talk) 08:45, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

The fruit's anus?[edit]

What is the name of the conical cavity in the fruit where the stem is attached? — O'Dea (talk) 04:35, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

epicarp mesocarp endocarp diagram?[edit]

I would absolutely love to see a visual representation of these layers across various types of fruit. I'm so in love with the idea I might make it myself next time I'm bored. Anybody have any thoughts on this? 7yl4r (talk) 23:37, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
