The fruit has the loot

Cat-claw Acacia (Senegalia greggii) fruits. Yes, it's a Pea!

I'm fond of saying: "The fruit is the thing with the seed(s)." Another way to simplify it, though, is to say: "The fruit has the loot." (This sentence has the added benefit of rhyme. And it would work well on a t-shirt.) What's the loot? The seed(s), of course. Each seed is a baby plant, with lunch, packed in a case.
