Where do seeds come from?
Question Date: 2013-02-13
Answer 1:

Have you ever heard of the story of the chicken and the egg? Which comes first, people ask, the chicken or the egg? Well it´s exactly the same with seeds. Seeds come from plants. They are often hidden in fruit, or contained in hard cases to keep them safe. Sometimes they are even hidden in armored vessels, like pine cones. But plants then come from seeds. So which came first? Nobody knows!
