Mention the Fate of Different Floral Parts After Fertilization

The flower has served its purpose after fertilization:

  • Stamens, style, petals and stigma wither and typically fall off
  • The calyx may either remain intact in a dried and shrivelled form or fall off 
  • The ovary enlarges to form the fruit, the ovarian wall forms the fruit wall. The ovary wall may either form a fleshy fruit wall or form a dry and hard fruit wall
  • Ovules go on to become the seed
