WHAT IS FRUIT SET?
Fruit set is the process in which flowers become fruit and potential fruit size is determined. It occurs after pollen is released from male flower parts (anthers), lands on receptive female flower parts (stigmas), produces a tube that grows to the ovule, and fertilises the egg within the ovule. The fertilised egg forms the seed, which induces the surrounding (pericarp) tissue to grow and form a berry. Yes, as strange as it may seem, the avocado fruit is botanically classified as a berry!
