Defined by a dictionary:
Seed: the small, hard part of a plant from which a new plant grows.
Growth: a stage in the process of growing.
I was cooking supper one evening and cut open a beautiful orange pepper. The seeds in this one were particulary large and interesting. Nothing like I had seen before. I grabbed my phone and took a picture.
Had the growth process of this pepper not been ended by harvesting, the seeds would produce a new plant that would grow and produce more lovely orange peppers.
BTW, the dish with the pepper in it was delish!
