Seed sample from: 2009
Measurement: 1.9 x 1.1 x 1
Features: Seed taking a variety of shapes, mostly wide at the hilium and tapering to a point at the opposite end. Seed body puckered around hilium. Hilium reddish brown to dark brown. Seed black.
Seed longitudinally grooved very finely, and glossy.
Basic Explanations and Assumptions:
The dimensions for the seeds are length x width x depth. The location of the hilum is used as the base of the seed, and the length is measured from hilum to the opposite apex. Where a style is present, the length is measured from the hilum to the bottom of the style. Width is measured at a right angle to the length at the widest part. Depth is measured at a right angle to the intersection of height and width lines.
Measurements included are the mean average for each measurement of ten separate seeds.
All measurements in millimeters unless otherwise noted.
