Two seeds in one calyx

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Papalag!

The picture was shot using the macro setting, then I cropped it.

It's my Malzilla, I was checking if the seeds were getting ripe, then I saw them.

These two seeds look ripe enough, I think I'll harvest them and see if they are identical twins.

Identical (monozygotic) twins are always of the same sex because they form from a single zygote (fertilized egg) that contains either male (XY) or female (XX) sex chromosomes.

If they are a boy and a girl, they are clearly NOT identical. You will see that when you change their diapers.

In 99.9% of cases boy/girl twins are non-identical. However, in some extremely rare cases resulting from a genetic mutation, identical twins from an egg and sperm which began as male (XY) can develop into a male / female pair.  This happens when the fertilised egg 'loses' one of the copies of the Y chromosome when it is dividing into two embryos in very early development. The resulting babies are then male (XY) and female (XO). The normal genetic make-up of a girl is XX. An XO baby is outwardly a girl, but her cells only have one copy of the X chromosome. This condition is called Turner Syndrome
