In a bisexual flower, inspite of the young stamens being removed artificially, the flower produces fruit. Explain.

The bisexual flower consists of both, male as well as female reproductive organs. When the young stamens (male reproductive part) are removed from the bisexual flower, they still possess pistil (female reproductive part).

During cross-pollination, the pollen grains from another flower are transferred to the stigma of the pistil unit with the help of pollinating agents such as insects, wind and water.

When the pollen grain steps onto the stigma, fertilization can occur and develops into fruits and seeds.
