A term commonly used in biology (intersexuality, hermaphroditism) for the occurrence of bi-gender individuals with male and female sexes. There are two types of hermaphroditism in seed plants: so-called monoecious plants have both male and female flowers, but these are separate; for example, on one branch (branch) a female organ, on another branch a male organ. In truly hermaphroditic plants, both male and female sexual organs are united in the flowers. These are called hermaphrodites or hermaphrodites, the flowers are called hermaphrodite flowers. This phenomenon occurs in many plants and is the rule in cultivated vines. However, there are also purely female vine varieties that are dependent on cross-pollination.
