The pine cones can be transformed into characters: a spider
Have you ever thought about why we see green pine cones, brown, large or small? This is because the female cones all have one year apart. They are of different ages. The smaller ones are logically younger. Those of medium size and slightly larger are called "cones of the second year." Finally, the larger cones are also the lowest on the branch, it is the oldest (3rd year cones). Indeed, reproduction pine is quite complex. The female cones pass through three stages of maturation that span two full years. In turn, male cones are smaller and more ephemeral. They occur every year and live only a few weeks.
Apple female and male pin
The pine cone is not a fruit in the botanical sense. The fruit is the result of the transformation of the female part of the flower, called the carpel. Pine does not form flowers, but male and female cones. Males, smaller, produce only pollen while females are formed scales. On its surface, each scale has two big naked ovules. Females and males grow on different branches. The lower branches are inhabited by males while females are located on the upper branches. This is a position for fertilization. Often this fertilization is normally done by another tree pollen because hardly rises to the female cones. They remain on the tree at least three years. So the pine cones that we tend to pick up are more females. When talking about "pine cone" denotes the female cone. It is bigger, strong and durable.
