Fruit of the Womb: The Botanical Classification of Fruit

A didactic poster illustrating the floral origins of fruit. The idea for this poster came from a summertime dinner conversation, when enjoying a salad and recalling the trivial fact that tomatoes are "actually" fruit. This spawned an interest in understanding why tomatoes are fruit, and led to an entire summer-long investigation into botanical and carpological literature. As a result, I was inspired to synthesize my findings into a visual reference guide that would be both informative and visually engaging.
