Drupes are fruits that have a single pit or “stone” at the center surrounding its seed. The pit or stone is itself surrounded by a larger portion called the pericarp, part of which is the section we usually eat (the mesocarp, which is the fleshy part of the fruit, and sometimes the exocarp, or skin).
