Terung Dayak (Solanum lasiocarpum Dunal.) is one of the important species in SQlanaceae family. The present study looks into the morphological characteristics on five accessions of the Terung Dayak, namely Terung Mas, Hairy, AC. No. 148, AC. No. 155 and AC. No. 167. Morphological characterization was done using a scoring method to produce a botanical description on every accession. Each accession has one or more characteristics which can distinguish one from the others. Shape and size of fruit, as well as presence of prickles are the most obvious characteristics which can be used to differentiate the five accessions. Terung Mas has the largest fruit and Hairy has the smallest. Terung Mas also has an egg-shaped fruit, AC. No. 167 is pear-shaped whereas fruits of other accessions are rounded. Besides that, all accessions except AC. No. 148 have prickles on all parts of over the plant. More botanical information on Terung Dayak should be gathered since it is getting more popular in human consumption as well as important in agriculture.
