Tree that usually retains its needle- or scalelike leaves all winter long; it bears cones, hence its name, and produces a sticky sap known as resin.
Offshoot of a tree branch along which cones develop.
The male cone is usually smaller than the female cone; it produces pollen grains that subsequently disperse into the air.
Each female cone, growing erect on a branch, contains ovules that are fertilized by pollen grains; the ovules subsequently turn into seeds.
Edible seed inside the cone of certain species of pine that is often used in cooking and baking.
Fruit borne by conifers, consisting of scales arranged in a conical shape; when the cone is ripe, seeds develop under it.
