The anatomical structure of desi and kabuli chickpea seed coats



The anatomical structure of desi and kabuli chickpea seed coats



International Chickpea Newsletter (10): 26-27



Light-microscope examination was performed on sections of seeds of the desi cultivar H208 and the kabuli cultivar 501 20-50 days after flowering. In kabuli seeds, the epidermis develops into a uniseriate palisade layer without thickening of the cell wall. In desi seeds, it develops into a multiseriate palisade layer which later develops into thick-walled sclereids which are heavily stainable with toluidine blue, indicating the presence of phenolic compounds contributing to testa colour.
