The fruits are pedicellate, 4-winged indehiscent pods variable in shape from elongate or oblong-elliptical to obovate, to widely elongate, depending in part on how many seeds develop within the pod (see also illustrations in Dwyer and Hermann 1965).

Nine of these families are from open-pollinated spaced plants that were selected for vigor, leafiness, seed yield, and perfect pedicellate spikelets.
The sessile spikelet is lateral and the pedicellate one is terminal (Camara Hernandez & Gambino, 1990; Vegetti, 1994, 1999; Irish, 1997, 1998; Orr et al.
