hibiscus has all floral parts, but the plant lack a fruit. Why?

Hibiscus has all floral parts but the plant lacks a fruit even though androecium and gynoecium are present because the fruits of hibiscus are not similar to the parent plant and they look different from them. Also, when the pods of the hibiscus plant are fully matured, a crack is formed which opens up to throw away the seeds and this doesn’t allow the plant to bear fruits.

The androecium is the male part of the flower which is commonly known as the stamen while the gynoecium is the female part of the flower which is commonly known as pistil or carpel.

Also, the botanical term used for the androecium of hibiscus is known as monadelphous as the base of the filament is attached to the stamen which is of the same and forms a staminal tube.
