What determines the number of seeds in a mandarin? Would every manderin on one tree have the same number of seeds? Does the tree contain genes for the number of seeds in it's maderines, similar to the way a human's genes determine their fertility (i think)? If so, does it contain a seperate gene for every manderine the tree will ever produce? On that note, do fruit trees have a pre-determined number of pieces of fruit they will produce in their natural life, similar to how the number of eggs a female (human) has is determined either before they are born or very early in life? I thank you in advance for your time. please correct any misinformation i may have included in my question. And thankyou so much for your time and effort in running this forum; this site rocks!
