Well the modern orange, much like most of the fruit we eat, was artificially selected by humans each subsequent generation. Yes the oranges developed their infolds by virtue of their genes, but human intervention was probably responsible for their survival.

No it actually wasn't, Separation of multiple containers is very common in fruits. Think of a blackberry which are basically are bunch of tiny seed containers connected together. Tomatoes are also perfect examples of berries in that there are three distinct areas Ectoderm, Mesoderm, and Endoderm. Compartmentalization is practically a basic necessity for plant life even in the way their cells are aligned in plants to create its vascular system and some plants don't even has vascular systems but work entirely autonomous parts like macro algae. Even more amazing is spongers, you can take a sponge throw it through a blender and then dump the liquid into a nutrient tank the sponge will withing a week of so completely reforms into a new sponge without any major cellular death. Basically just because you don't understand where something in nature comes from doesn't mean man made it because biology is more awesome than you realize.
