It might be clearer to separate this article into two articles, one on fruit (botany) and the other on edible fruits, or the fruit food group. The botany article could have more technical details on fruits in general (edible and non-edible) while the fruit food group could focus on the aspects of edible, agricultural fruits. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Greg.collver (talk • contribs) 15:22, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

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
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
Removing section: Endopericarpal layer
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?
epicarp mesocarp endocarp diagram?
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)
Pome is an accessory fruit, not a simple fruit
This is very confusing and contradictory because both the pages for Pome and Accessory fruit list a pome as an accessory fruit. I am not terribly informed on the matter so it would be great if someone more in the know could maybe clear this up? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Giantmushingd (talk • contribs) 20:12, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
