Expert Answer:

Process of fertilization in plants:

  • The process of fusion of a male gamete with a female gamete to form a zygote is called fertilisation.
  • Once the pollens settle on the stigma, they form a tube called the pollen tube.
  • The pollen tube grows through the style of the flower and enters the ovary.
  • The tip of the pollen tube dissolves to release the pollen grain in the ovary.
  • In the ovary, a female gamete is released which fuses with the pollen grain to form a zygote.
  • After fertilisation the ovary enlarges and forms a fruit.
