Many years ago I enrolled in a one-on-one "Readings and Conference" 
that involved learning how to prepare slides and count chromosomes.  
Accurate for sure, but NOT at all easy.

Perhaps a simpler, and perhaps not even a slower, way would be to 
cross the unknown with a few known diploids and tetraploids.  
Whichever type produces  plump pods--that aren't balloons--defines 
the type for the unknown.

With the intensity of color of the cv in Mike's photo, I would doubt 
the unknown is diploid anyway.  It takes dosage effects and/or 
aphylla ancestry stirred in to get that rich a color tone.  That's a 
tetraploid issue.  TB anthocyanins don't run that deep in diploids in 
either BB or Bb levels--that is to say, in any diploids I ever saw or 
grew.  I can only speak from my own observations.
