How does boll weevil destroy the cotton plant?
The boll weevil has this big snout and it uses it to bite the top of the cotton plant. Then it licks out the cotton until it has no more cotton inside the ball. The boll weevil larvae and pupal do the same thing but they have to get help from the adult boll weevil to eat the top og the cotton plant.

What is cotton fruit?
Any part of the plant that has seeds IN it -or ON it (like a strawberry) -IS BOTANICALLY SPEAKING, A "FRUIT". All flowering plants produce a "fruit" during it's stages of development, although not all fruits are edible/tasty... I am a school gardener in Northern California and as an experiment we grew cotton, very unlikely to come to harvest in our higher elevations -but it did! We had a guest from Cambodia here who said that in her country people do eat the fruit of the cotton plant. OBVIOUSLY one would have to eat it long before the fibers form and dry, as the cotton "boll" opens at harvest time (200 days after germination).
