Family name - Cucurbitaceae
Alternative terms for accessory fruit are false fruit, spurious fruit, pseudofruit, or pseudocarp. These are older terms for accessory fruit that have been criticized as "inapt", and are not used by some botanists today.
The following are examples of accessory fruits listed by the plant organ from which the accessory tissue is derived:
- Hypanthium-derived: pomes (e.g. apple and pear)
- Perianth-derived: anthocarps of the Nyctaginaceae
- Receptacle-derived: fig, mulberry, pineapple, and strawberry
- Calyx-derived: Gaultheria procumbens and Syzygium jambos
