  • It is the female reproductive part of the flower.
  • Members are called carpel.
  • Each carpel has three parts namely stigma, style and ovary.
  • Ovary is the enlarged basal part on which lies the elongated tube, the style.
  • The stigma usually at the tip of the style.
  • Stigma is the receptive surface for pollen grain.
  • Each ovary bears one or more ovules.
  • Ovule attached to a flattened cushion-like placenta in the ovary.
  • When more than one carpel is present they may be:-
    • Apocarpous: all carpels are free. E.g. rose, lotus
    • Syncarpous: carpels fused. E.g. Tomato mustard.
  • After fertilization:-
    • Ovules develop into seed.
    • Ovary developed into fruit.
