||The part of a plant that can make
another plant. Botanically, a seed is the matured ovule without
accessory parts that is produced by gymnosperm and angiosperm
plants which occurs after fertilization and some growth within
the mother plant. It is a small embryonic plant enclosed in a
covering called the seed coat, with or without some stored food
Usually a plant makes flowers, then once the flowers have been
pollinated, they turn into fruit. The seeds are inside the
fruit. Seeds can be spread by wind, water, or animals.
Colloquially, a seed is anything which may
be sown; i.e., seed potatoes (which are vegetative tubers); seed
of corn, sunflower, etc.
