The Rafflesia is a huge flower that likes to have flies pollinate it. The way it gets the flies to pollinate it is its revolting smell of ROTTING MEAT!

The flies smell the meat and fly over to find it. They crawl over the flower in search of the meat only to get covered in pollen, and that’s the way it delivers the pollen to somewhere else. Here’s a picture of the actual flower:

The normal place you’ll find a Rafflesia is on the rainforest floor.
But don’t go near it, because as you have heard; it smells of rotting meat!
Fruits come in different categories. The first category I’ll talk about, is the melon category.
This melon category consists of watermelon, rockmelon, casaba, honeydew and casaba. Fruits like that with a lot of seeds and thick skin. Here’s a picture of a watermelon:

The next category I’ll talk about is the citrus fruit category. Things like kumquats, lemon, grapefruits, orange, tangerines and limes. They usually have a sort of inner thin skin called a membrane. The membrane divides the inside of the fruit into little pieces that you might call segments. Here’s a picture of a lemon:

As you can see in this picture, the membrane is dividing it into segments.
The last category I’ll talk about, is the tropical fruits category.
It has fruits in it like avocados, coconut, bananas, figs, dates, guavas, mangoes, papayas, mangos, pineapples, pomegranates and kiwi. The tropical fruits grow in warm conditions. Here’s a picture of my favourite fruit, the mango, which is a tropical fruit:

although there are other categories of fruit like berries, pits and cores; I won’t go through them because then we’d all get bored.
I hope you enjoyed this post!
