F2 segregation pattern for fruit shape and pedicel character in tomato.
Author(s): S. AKHTAR AND M. K. PANDIT
Abstract: The present investigation was designed to study the segregation pattern of fruit shape and pedicel character in tomato. Semi dominance and gene interactions were operative for the control of fruit shape. Segregation analysis in the F2 population indicated the involvement of two genes controlling fruit shape. It could be determined that ‘jointed pedicel’ character controlled by the single gene ‘JJ’ was completely dominant over ‘jointless pedicel’ character controlled by ‘jj’..
