Vegetable Seeds

Most of our food plants start as seeds. And most of these seeds are divided into two types: Monocots and Dicots

The word “Mono” means one.

The word “Di” means two. 

For seeds, this means that when it germinates, or sprouts its very first leaves, in a Monocot there will only be one leaf. In a Dicot there will be two!
