Since parts of this discusion have evolved (am I still allowed to use that
word?) to differences between monocots and dicots but so far no dicot
example has been introduced, I thought I'd throw in horse chestnuts
(Aesculus woerlitzensis and A. hippocastanum) as examples of dicots with a
liquid endosperm.
