comment What's the name of the fibrous strands that hold the seeds in a pumpkin?
@leonardo en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berry lists pumpkins. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squash_%28plant%29 says that squash are berries. So now I'm even more confused...

@leonardo Where do you see that on the site? I can't find pumpkins mentioned anywhere. Wikipedia lets me know pumpkins are berries, and that site describes the mesocarp and endocarp as the "fleshy or juicy tissue", so that sounds like the part of the pumpkin you eat...

From the article I quoted in the edit, it sounds like the endocarp is actually the thin film directly attached to the seed, not the fibrous stuff around it. Am I reading the article incorrectly?

@Bitwise if you try "fruit placental tissue", you get more results... I think pumpkins are fruit from a botanical standpoint, right?
