Figs Are Inverted Flowers #shorts

Have you ever wondered why we don’t see flowers blooming on fig trees? The part that we eat is called a syconium, which is an enlarged stem tissue or inflorescence (a group of flowers). The fig is a mass of inverted flowers. Each flower matures into a one-seeded fruit called achene. The fig is the mature infructescence or fruit head composed of multiple fruits. Most common figs that are typically grown in home gardens are parthenocarpic meaning the fruits develop without fertilization. They may be seedless or produce nonviable seeds. Common figs don’t rely on the fig wasp (Blastophaga, family Agaonidae) for pollination. The fig (Ficus carica) belongs to the mulberry family (Moraceae). A Mediterranean native that has been cultivated since the ancient past.
