Does the seed count change with the number of fruits on a plant?

Say I have three plants, A, B, and C.

Say A has one fruit on it, and it has X number of seed aid that fruit.

B has two fruits, and their individual seed counts are Y. This is suggesting they are both the same, but different from X.

Then C has three fruits, who's seed counts are all the same, and are Z.

Would Y be higher than X be higher than Z, or not?

I dont think there's much variation. Never done an experiment to see. But I grew 2 on 1 plant this year. A 171 and a 161 and both seemed to have about the same amount of seeds.

Lots go into then just number of fruit....weather, heat, pollination....lobe count will Determined on the potential amount of seeds. Like Nick I did 2 on one plant last year....4 lobe an 6 lobe 6 had way more seeds.
