    The correct answer is D. Accessory fruit


    Fruits are structures that develop from the fertilized ovary of plants and that contain the seed of it, this includes simple, aggregate and multiple fruits. However, there is one type of fruits that do not develop from ovary but from other tissues that are usually near the ovary, these fruits are called accessory or pseudo fruits as they do not fit completely the definition of regular fruits, this includes fruits such as strawberries or pineapples that develop from tissues different to the ovary.
