State a similarity and a difference observed between Parthenocarpy and apomixis.
Difference between apomixis and parthenocarpy:
In parthenocarpy, development of fruits occur without fertilisation. These fruits develop directly from the ovule and they are either seedless or contain empty or non-viable seeds. On the other hand, in apomixis, development of seeds occur without fertilisation. The embryo inside the seed develops either from the unfertilised diploid egg or directly from any other cell of the embryo sac, other than egg.
