Seed

Organ of reproduction and dispersal of flowering plants and gymnosperms (collectively called the seed plants), developing enclosed in the fruit of the former or on scales of female cones of the latter. A seed consists of a plant embryo, food storage tissue and a protective seed coat. A seed may remain dormant for a long period before its germination is initiated by moisture and warmth.
