Seed sample from: 2011
Average Measurement: 1.3 x 1 x 0.2
Measurement Range: L: 1 - 1.5, W: 0.9 - 1.1, D: 0.1 - 0.3
Shape: Seed narrowly winged with accumbent cotyledons, making the position of the radicle apparent.
Color: Seed wings transparent. Seed brown, darkening towards the hilum.
Surface: Seed coat bumpy and shiny.
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.
