but why are they hairy

Answer #3

Oh my, I read the question wrong I thought you asked what other things are hairy. I need to go to sleep. XD

Answer #4

Fruits are hairy to keep the outside of the fruit good, while the inside is being developed. It helps protect insects from eating the inside because the hairs will stick to their legs causing them to try to detach themselves, which means they’ll fly away forgetting what they were doing in the first place. The hairy coating is very rich in flavoniod antioxidants, which are very high in dietary fiber, causing them to have a mild laxative effect.

I hope this helps! C;
