The seed coat which covers the seed is membranous and fused with the cell wall.
The endosperm is bulky, and it serves as the food reserve.
The outer covering of the endosperm is a proteinous layer called the aleurone layer.
A small embryo is located in a groove at one end of the endosperm.
A large shield-shaped cotyledon called the scutellum is present.
