Sunflower

Did you know that sunflower seeds actually do come from sunflowers? Don't laugh, a lot of people (including me) don't realize the truth until they see with their own eyes the flowers' dark centers bursting with your classic duggout snack. Indeed, the seeds come about just like any other fruit--pollinators visit the beautiful flowers to get some delicious nectar or pollen for themselves, but get covered in all that reproductive dust. As they visit other flowers (or even the same flower), they just happen to leave all that dusty pollen around on the flower's stigma. And boom! A baby plant (aka a fruit or nut or seed) is born! Well, first it's gotta make it's way to a good spot to germinate and grow, but it's like, a prebaby plant. Anyways, sunflowers are pretty, huh?
