saat, Icel. s[=a][eth], sae[eth]i, Goth. manas[=e][thorn]s
seed of men, world. See {Sow} to scatter seed, and cf.
{Colza}.]
1. (Bot.)
(a) A ripened ovule, consisting of an embryo with one or
more integuments, or coverings; as, an apple seed; a

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass,
the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree
yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in

Note: The seed proper has an outer and an inner coat, and
within these the kernel or nucleus. The kernel is
either the embryo alone, or the embryo inclosed in the
albumen, which is the material for the nourishment of
the developing embryo. The scar on a seed, left where
the stem parted from it, is called the hilum, and the
closed orifice of the ovule, the micropyle.
