Aggregate fruit

A raspberry fruit (shown with a raspberry beetle larva) is an aggregate fruit, an aggregate of drupelets The fruit of an ''Aquilegia'' flower is one fruit that forms from several ovaries of one flower, and it is an aggregate of follicles. However, because the follicles are not fused to one another, it is not considered an aggregate fruit An aggregate fruit or etaerio is a fruit that develops from the merger of several ovaries that were separate in a single flower.
