Balsaminaceae FRUIT AND DISPERSAL. The mature fruit of Impatiens is fleshy and fusiform to cylindric in shape. Dehiscence is caused by a tension in the convex fleshy walls of the ovary. This tension is released by rupture of the walls along the septa, thus throwing the seeds for several meters by the elastic force of the dehiscing fruit wall. At maturity, the slightest touch will cause the explosion of the fruit, hence the folk names "touch-me-not" or "busy lizzy". The fruits of Hydrocera are fleshy pseudoberries with a hard endocarp that falls into five distinct units (partial endocarps, each with one seed and two air sacs).
