Conifers are collectively referred to as softwoods, and botanists classify them as gymnosperms. The word gymnosperm, from the Greek gymnos (naked) and sperma (seed), means "naked seed". This refers to the fact that conifer seeds are not contained in fruit tissue like apple seeds are, for example. Instead, the seeds are borne on scales, which are grouped together to form cones, hence the name conifer, or cone bearing.
