Expert Answer:

Turgor Pressure is the main pressure of the cell contents against the cell wall in plant cells. Turgid plant cells contain more water than flaccid cells and exert a greater osmotic pressure on its cell walls.

Turgor is a force exerted outward on a plant cell wall by the water contained in the cell. This force gives the plant rigidity, and helps to keep it erect.
