The pericarp is the part of the fruit component of a plant that is derived from the carpel that constitutes the ovary wall of the flower. The outermost layer is called the outer pericarp (exocarp) or flaved, the innermost layer is called the inner pericarp (endocarp), and the layer located between these is called the middle pericarp (mesocarp) or albedo. It changes into various shapes depending on the type of fruit. The flesh is often juicy, but the flesh is not always derived from the flesh.
