      Embryo sac development conforms to Polygonum type. Starch grains are noticed in the embryo sac right from the megaspore mother cell stage. Twin tetrads one with a chalazal functional megaspore and another with a micropylar functional megaspore have been noticed in some ovules. While 75% of the embryo sacs have normal polarity, in 20% of the ovules reverse polarity has been noticed. In the remaining 5% of the ovules, ‘bipolarity’ has been observed. Reverse polarity in relation to double archegoniate theory has been discussed.
