      the fruit is important because it usually holds the seeds! So it is important because it ensures that the seeds are safe, well protected, and have enough nutrients. Lastly, the fruit is also what is consumed by animals/birds/insects etc, and process helps to spread the seeds far and wide, increasing the livelihood of the plant.
