Solution

The correct option is C Porocidal capsule
The fruit of poppy is a kind of dry dehiscent multi-seeded fruit in which the dehiscence occurs by formation of pores in the fruit. It develops from a multicarpellary syncarpous ovary and thus called a porocidal capsule.
Lolicidal capsule is a type of capsule that dehisces from the back of loculi in the form of longitudinal cuts.
Berry and pepo are succulent fruits.
So, the correct answer is 'Porocidal capsule'.
