Why does the apple trees flower develop into an apple?
Scientifically, flowers develops into fruits because the anther which stores pollen sacs that produces pollen grains will be transferred to the stigma by wind or small insects.Each pollen grain produces a pollen tube. The male reproductive cells are found inside the tip of the pollen tube.The pollen tube enters the ovule that contains an egg cell.Fertilisation occurs when the male and female reproductive cell fuses.After fertilisation, the petals,style and stigma wither and drop off but not the ovary.The ovules in the ovary start to develop into seeds and then the ovary swells up to become a fruit.
The Ovules must remain attached to the mother plants as the embryo seeds develop and mature. After fertilization the plant devotes a lot of energy into growing the seeds and preparing them for dispersal. If the ovules is detached before maturity the seeds will not germinate. Think of picking an unripe apple, as the apple is the trees developing ovule.
Bees visit the flowers on the apple trees to get food how might a disease that kills bees affect the number of apples the trees make?
When a bee visits an apple tree, as it goes from flower to flower it transfers pollen from the anthers of one flower to the stigma of the next, fertilizing the flower. Apple flowers have five ovaries, each with two ovules, and each with its own stigma. All of these have to be pollinated for fully developed apples to form. Bees are by far the major pollinator, so if we lost all the bees there…
Answer Well, sort of. But the question indicates some ignorance, although probably it is innocent ignorance. A tree is a type of plant. A flower is what some plants sprout for reproduction. Angiosperms are the types plants that flower to reproduce ... the flower has the stamen and pistil for plant-sexual reproduction. Some, in fact most, trees do in fact flower -- that is what a cherry or apple blossom is: a flower. But trees…
Michigan's State Flower is the apple blossom. In adopting the apple tree's blossom as state flower on April 28, 1897, Chapter 2, Section 2.11 of Michigan Compiled Laws specifically refers to Pyrus coronaria as "one of the most fragrant and beautiful flowered species of apple" that is native to Michigan. The legislation thereby treasures the beauty imparted by blossoming apple trees to Michigan's landscapes as well as the worldwide reputation enjoyed by Michigan's apples.
