Parts of a Seed

Seed is attached to the fruit by a stalk, the funiculus (funicle). The prolongation of the funiculus running along the seed and terminating at the chalaza is called raphe. The funicular vascular supply is responsible for the flow of food reserves. When the seed is separated from the funiculus a scar is left at the point of attachment which is termed hilum.
