1. The ovules in Chrozophora rottleri A. Juss. are crassinucellate, bitegmic, and hemianatropous. The nucellus shows a well-developed beak which grows out of the micropyle and reaches almost to the placenta. 2. The hypodermal archesporial cell cuts off a parietal cell. The chalazal cell of a linear tetrad of megaspores produces the 8-nucleate gametophyte. Development thus conforms to the Polygonum type. 3. The endosperm is of the Nuclear type. Centripetal wall formation occurs at the heart-shaped stage of the embryo, and ultimately cellular endosperm occupies the entire embryo sac.
