Fruits derived not from the ovary but from other accessory floral parts are called false fruits. On the contrary, true fruits are those fruits in which fleshy part develop from ovary, but don’t consists of the thalamus or any other floral parts. In an apple the fleshy receptacle forms the main edible part. Hence it is a false fruit.
