What is superior, inferior & half inferior ovary

Dear student,
  • Half inferior ovary refers to that positioned ovary in which sepals, petals, stamens, and/or hypanthodium are attached to the middle of the ovary. This type of organisation is found in flowers of plants such as peach, plum, rose. Such flowers are called perigynous.
  • The ovary is called inferior when other floral parts are above the ovary. Ex. Guava
  • The ovary is called superior when other floral parts are below the ovary. E.g., Brinjal and Mustard
