Eggplant and beans

Eggplant 1.JPG
WHAT: A fleshy eggplant
WHERE: from my garden in South Minneapolis
SO: This is a berry from an eggplant. It is unclear to me where the mesocarp ends and the endocarp begins, but the endocarp must be the tissue closest to the seeds.

WHAT: Lima bean
WHERE: from my garden in South Minneapolis.
SO: This is a dry, dehiscent fruit with the ovary wall split open at the seam.


I'm not sure either where one ends and the other begins. One of the sources I checked left out the endocarp completely and just labeled the exo and meso.
