mari kita lihat aper dia tu macademia nuts:

Macadamia nuts (Macadamia integrifolia) are dry drupes containing a very hard seed-bearing endocarp. According to most botanical references, the outer husk represents part of the ovary wall or pericarp. However, according to the The Macadamia Nut in California (1978), published by the California Macadamia Society, the fruit is a follicle consisting of a single seed (sometimes 2) in a husk which usually splits open at maturity. Technically, a follicle is composed of a single carpel that splits open along one seam. If the outer husk represents one carpel, then the macadamia nut is indeed a follicle. I have fluctuated on the classification of the macadamia fruit for years, but at this time I am leaning toward a follicle rather than a drupe. The following two images may shed some light on this contoversy.

An immature macadamia nut (Macadamia integrifolia) released from its outer dehiscent husk (pericarp). The seed shows a distinct attachment scar (hilum) where it was joined to the placental region on the inner ovary wall (pericarp). In a mature seed, the attachment scar is covered over by the thick, woody seed coat. If the outer pericarp represents a single carpel, then this fruit is indeed a follicle rather than a drupe.

A mature macadamia nut (Macadamia intregrifolia) showing the thick, woody seed coat and white seed. The white, micropyle region of the seed extends through the woody wall and is visible as a white dot on the exterior. In a true drupe, there would be no extension of the seed or micropyle through the woody endocarp wall.
