The androgenic response of Capsicum frutescens L. genotypes in in vitro anther culture
Languages of publication
Two soft-flesh Capsicum frutescens L. lines were used in the study. The androgenesis process was induced according to the procedure described for C. annuum L. In the cultures established in summer, not many anthers forming the callus tissue were observed. Cytometric analysis showed the presence of cells with different content of DNA. Among 1.000 anthers displayed of one line, seven embryos were observed. Four embryos continued the development resulting in obtaining plants. Three of them had the DNA content on 1C level, the fourth one was diploid. The test of an androhaploid induction in autumn cycle, with the genotype of positive response in summer, was not successful.
