Best Answer

Sexual reproduction: It is a type of reproduction in which two different parent cells (male and female) are required. In this type of reproduction, a male and a female gamete fuse to form a zygote. The process of fusion of male and female gametes (to form a zygote) is called fertilization. The zygote develops into an embryo, while the triploid endosperm (one male cell plus two female cells) and female tissues of the ovule give rise to the surrounding tissues in the developing seed. The ovary, then grows into a fruit, which surrounds the seed(s). The seed contains an embryo enclosed in a protective seed coat.

In sexual reproduction, new plants are grown from seeds.
