The seed of a plant consists of the seed coat, the embryo and the endosperm into which the embryo is embedded. Looking at the embryo, one can recognize some of the later parts of the plants, such as the seed leaves (cotyledons) and the first true leaves, the seed stalks and the roots (radicle). In the case of the bean seed, especially the two large, withish,kidney-shaped seed leaves (cotyledons), which are below the solid skin, are striking.
