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.
