1-11-16 Monday, January 11, 2016 12:49 PM  Introduction to Fruit Crops o Fruit  Botanically: mature ovary with seed (and associated parts)  Ex: apples are pseudo-fruits; flesh isn't from the ovary, ovary is the core  True fruit is just that ovary  Most of the strawberry is derived from the receptacle; black dots are the true fruit  The developed receptacle is to attract animals to eat the fruit and disperse the seed  Many vegetables are botanically fruits because they contain seed  Ex: eggplant, peppers, tomatoes  Study if fruit: pomology  Derived from the type of fruit called a pomme 1-13-16 Wednesday, January 13, 2016 10:14 AM  Use of fruit crops o Essential component of diet o Contribute vitamins and fiber o Many fruits contain antioxidants, anti-cancer agents and other components within medicinal value  Called phyto-nutrients  Lycopene in tomatoes and watermelons  Adds the red/orange color  Resveratrol in grapes  Contributes to the beneficial aspects of wine  Other compounds  Most accumulate in the outer layer tissue like apple peel and other skins of fruit to help directly deal with stresses  The rest of the fruit is sugars and fibers  Meant for defense mechanisms and dealing with abiotic stress  Taxonomy o Primarily used for identification of the plant (fruit crop) o Common notation consists of Genus and species information o Usually followed by abbreviated name of the person who coined it o Representation of varietal information is common for fruit crops like cultivar names  Ex: Prunus persica (L.) Batsch. 'Redhaven'  Origin and production information o Origin of crop and general history of production  Information useful in plant breeding and crop improvement o Production information - reflects changing trends over time  Ex: the US no longer produces the most apples, China does  Botanical description o Plant description  Plant growth habit  Leaf form  Leaf shape  Parts of a flower o Peduncle holds the flower up and connects the flower to the rest of the plant o Receptacle  Right above the peduncle  Houses the rest of the floral organs  Slightly bulbous  Becomes the fleshy portion of some fruits like strawberries o Sepals (calyx) and petals (corolla)  First and second whorl  Petals attract pollinators o Stamen (androecium)  Anther  Filament  Third whorl o Pistil (gynoecium)  Stigma  Style  Ovary (also can be called the carpel if it’s a simple ovary instead of compound)  In a compound ovary there are several compartments which are the carpels  Fourth whorl 1-15-16 Friday, January 15, 2016 10:03 AM  Flower terminology o Complete flower  All four floral parts (whorls) are present within the flower o Incomplete flower  One or more of the floral organs are absent  Can be missing any whorl, including petals or sepals o Perfect flower  Stamens and pistils are present within the same flower o Imperfect flower  Either the stamen or pistil is missing  Male flowers are staminate and female flowers are pistillate  Monoecious  Staminate and pistillate flowers on a single parent  Ex: maize, pecans, walnut  Dioecious  Staminate and pistillate flowers are on different parents  Ex: most papaya, kiwifruit  Dichogamy  The male and female flowers open at different times  Protoandry is when the males open first and protogyny is when the female flowers open first  This causes a monecious plant to function as dioecious  Ex: pecans  Types of floral organ arrangement o Inferior ovary  Epigynous flower  The ovary is present at the basal part and the rest of the floral organs begin showing up above the ovary  Ex: blueberries o Superior ovary  Hypogynous flower  The rest of the floral organs start showing up from below the ovary  Ex: tomatoes o Used to classify fruit types o Perigynous flower  The other floral organs fuse to form a cup-like structure that surrounds the base of the ovary  Ex: peaches, cherries, and other stone fruits  Inflorescence o Multiple flowers that originate from a single bud o In some situations each flower can become and fruit or the whole inflorescence can fuse together to produce a fruit  Blueberries produce individual fruits and pineapples fuse together from one inflorescence o They always have a specific arrangement o Determinate inflorescence have terminally buds that mature before the auxiliary flower o Indeterminate inflorescence have more mature flowers at the base and less mature flowers at the top  Pollination o Transfer of pollen from the anther to the surface of the stigma o Pollinators: agents which bring about the act of pollination  Wind pollination  Insect pollination  Bats/birds  Bees  Most common  Flies  Carrion flies  Attracted to the smell of rotting flesh
