Inspired from the poppy fruit (Papaver rhoeas L.), a geometrical optimization problem is posed. The aim is to minimize the surface area for a given volume. The poppy fruit geometry is selected as the optimization geometry. The mathematical problem is solved using calculus. The optimum solutions obtained from mathematical model are contrasted with measurements of the fruit. A good agreement with difference in areas less than 1% in most of the cases is observed between the results.
