Embryo culture as an aid to breeding Lilium






Acta Horticulturae (47): 187-192

Embryo culture as an aid to breeding Lilium

Some Lilium crosses produce seeds with faulty endosperm. The endosperm may abort at an early stage of development so that the embryo cannot develop fully or it may produce a toxin which damages or kills the embryo. The excised embryos can be grown aseptically on simple agar nutrient medium to produce hybrids which otherwise would be unobtainable. A high light intensity encourages embryo development, and humid conditions after transference of the plantlets from agar to soil minimize losses.

Using lily as a model, an integrated in vitro pollination, fertilization and embryo rescue system was developed; use of the in vitro techniques avoided both pre and post-fertilization barriers in interspecific hybridizations. Similarly, in tulip i...
