The wall of a ripened overy, sometimes consisting of three distinct layers, the endocarp, mesocarp, and epicarp.



Where are you going with this?

Jeff, The short answer is nowhere. Since the word has came up three times recently I thought it good to know exactly what it meant and how to use it. Like rose seeds and Brazil Nuts develop in percarps in the same manner. The percarps of oranges and peaches are not the same. There’s a big difference in the percarps of roses from thick walled to thin and juicy.
