A study was made of the hybrids Krasnoyarsk 3 and Kazbek, together with their parents, the lines V155, T23, WF9 and Hy. The hybrids differed from their male parents but resembled their female parents in sucrose content. They had a higher rate of hydrolysis of the polysaccharides and a more rapid accumulation and consumption of simple sugars than their parents.
