Abstract: Canavalia virosa is an important species commonly known as "Barasem". This leguminous plant is a perennial woody climber with many phytochemical and medicinal values. Black, brown and mottled seeds were obtained from the pods, collected from Lucknow and its adjoining areas. Amongst them, black and mottled seeds were from the same pod or different pods of the same plant. According to average analysis, each ten pods showed black from three pods, mottled from five and both coloured seeds from two pods. During the micro-morphological study, seed variability in relation to seed colour was observed which is a significant parameter for the separation of all the three coloured seeds of a species.
