Question: Are fruits considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Taxonomists classify fruits as dicots.
Why Are Fruits Considered Dicots?
Fruits grow on trees or bushes, and this makes them dicots. The principal definition of a dicot is a plant with two seeds leaves, but other factors like having a woody stalk protected by a bark layer and root formation also come into play.
