Good one again
Here the leaflets would be obtuse to acute. (Seen here) Hilum less than half as long as the seed which is ivory or white 22 mm long


I could not find any keys for Indian species on net except at Flora of China.
These take me to Canavalia cathartica Thouars for your species.
I want to have your & others views before final decision.

Feb2015sk07 Hooghly – Canavalia sp. ID please : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (5)

This was growing in a kitchen garden, a cultivated species. I am not sure if it can be Canavalia ensiformis (L.) DC or C. gladiata (Jacq.) DC.

Photographed on 28-Sept-2012.
Sir Prain listed four species in ‘Bengal Plants’ of which one is cultivated – C. ensiformis. But the problem is He also gives Dolichos gladiatus of ‘FLora Indica’ as its synonym. Haines’ views is same.
So, please help…..


Canavalia gladiata (Jacq.) DC. is the edible one, C. ensiformis flowers will be with more bluish tinge. 


Thank you very much … for the id and differentiating characters.

It is reported in Flora of Tamilnadu, it is edible and often cultivated in villages near farm huts.


But FOC did not give corolla as white in Canavalia cathartica Thouars 


Thanks for the updates.
