A fruit consists of two main parts: (1) seeds and (2) pericarp or fruit wall.

PERICARP: Outer coat 'exocarp sometimes called the epicarp', middle mesocarp and inner endocarp, these three regions collectively are called the pericarp.

The structure and thickness of pericarp varies from fruit to fruit and in case of dry fruits these layers are not easily distinguishable.
