Abstract

The recent record of an unusually long inflorescence of Cassia fistula ('Ehela') from Sri Lanka, reaching up to 238 cm can be considered as the longest recorded legume inflorescence. In the world of legumes, records surpassing such lengths are very rare and are not well authenticated. Therefore, the present record can be considered as a strong contender for the longest inflorescence in the legume family.
