Lablab bean (Dolichos lablab L.) is one of the legume species that have the potential as an alternative food source for Indonesian people. The purpose of this study was to examine the diversity of seed size and nutritional content of six lablab bean accessions found in the Madura, Probolinggo, and West Nusa Tenggara (WNT), Indonesia. Morphological observations of seeds which included parameters of length, width, thickness, and seed weight, while the nutrient content of seeds was obtained from proximate analysis which included assay of fat, protein, and amylose. Data analysis used in this study wasa one-way analysis of variance and Pearson Product Moment test. The results of the analysis showed that the variety of accessions had a significant effect on all morphological parameters and nutrient levels studied. Besides, the results of data analysis also inform that some morphological parameters and nutrient content have a significant correlation.The findings of this study also show that lablab seeds contain high protein and amylose, so the use of this plant as alternative food in Indonesia is highly recommended.
