    Pistil and Stamen

    Fertilization and Seeds

    • The stamen is covered with pollen, or sperm, which pollinators--various insects, other animals or wind--carry from one flower to another. Located deep in a flower's center and pistil is its ovary, which contains ovules or eggs. When pollen combines with an ovule, the ovule is fertilized and becomes a seed.

    Seeds

    • After the flower has done its job--producing seeds through pollination--it begins to change. The flower's ovary, which holds the plant's fertilized ovules, swells and becomes the plant's fruit.
