I read that "hog peanuts", (Amphicarpa bracteata)has two
different flowers and fruit. One type of flower grows near the
ground and bears edible fruit while the other has pealike
flowers and bears nonedible fruit. What force in evolution
would have caused that and which type of fruit contains the
seeds of the plant?
