I know that seedless oranges are a reslut of grafting, but I'm confused. I thought a fruit's seeds are it's ovules, and the fruit is the ovary. I also thought that a fruit is formed to nurture a fertilized ovule, or embryo. If these oranges are really "seedless" then how or why does the fruit form? Are there little ovules that are too small for the eye to notice?
