Abstract Halopyrum mucronatum have dimorphic seeds and referred to as black and brown seeds. Black seeds when soaked in either non-saline or saline medium, showed lesser solute leakage in comparison to brown seeds. Amylase extracted from black seeds had optimum performance in acidic pH, high temperature and ability of early substrate utilization. Results are discussed in relation to physiological attributes of seeds produced in different seasons and their habitat in response to salinity.
