  1. Are all the little florets seeds, or only the large central mass?

  2. It's wonderful. Reminds me of one of those artwork graphics for science of an exploding star shedding its outer layers.

  4. The seeds are in the segments, the middle bit is just filler. If you search for "pandanus fruit" you can find a bunch more cool things, like Pandanus conoideus fruit.
