Secrets of an Orange

How can you tell how many slices in an orange without pealing the fruit?

Materials: Orange fresh from the tree.

Process: Carefully, remove the small green or brown part of the plant still attached to the bottom of the orange. There will be a small hole left behind. Inside the hole is a series of dots. Count the dots.

Result: The number of dots is the number of slices. Each dot is the remains of a seed vessels which after pollination forms the slices inside the orange.
