Hopefully not a too-basic question for the venue. I'm a chile pepper growing hobbyist and have spent some time searching around and reading up on pepper (angiosperm) reproduction, but I'm not getting a clear picture of the details.
It seems like flowers have multiple ovules and it seems like one pollen-grain landing on the stigma leads to fertilization of a single ovule. And it seems like that process produces a single seed.
But that fertilization also prompts fruit growth and flower death and capsicum fruits have many seeds, never just one (that I've ever seen).
So, does each seed have a potentially different father? Or are the multiple seeds generated through a reproductive/cloning process that I'm not seeing written about? Or something else?
