There is usually no trace of ovary in the male flowers, though by exception one may occasionally be formed.
The seed is enclosed when ripe in the fruit, a development of the ovary as a result of fertilization of the egg-cell.
Ovary in dorsal valve.
The ovary consists of numerous carpels united together and free, or more or less embedded in the top of the flower-stalk.
Only the left ovary becomes functional, with rare individual exceptions.
