As we discussed in concept

Wind as an Agent of Pollination -

Wind pollination also requires that the pollen grains are light and non-sticky so that they can be transported in wind currents. They often possess well-exposed stamens so that the pollens are easily dispersed into wind currents. Stigma is large and often-feathery to easily trap air-borne pollen grains. They have a single ovule in each ovary and numerous flowers packed into an inflorescence.

- wherein

E.g., corn cob - the tassels are actually the stigma and style which wave in the wind to trap pollen grains.

 Syconus fruit develops from the hypanthodium inflorescence, eg: Ficus carica, F. religiosa, F. benghalensis. The flask-shaped receptacle encloses female flowers that give rise to achene-like fruitless. This fruit possesses a small pore protected by scaly leaves. The receptacle that becomes fleshy is edible.
