Reciprocal hybrids between 4x S. nigrum and S. villosum exhibited some heterosis over the parents for height, leaf size and leaf thickness and fertility was good. Meiosis was mostly normal in the hybrid pollen mother cells, though some univalents, trivalents, quadrivalents and anaphase abnormalities were observed. The orange-red fruit colour of 4x S. nigrum was dominant over the yellow fruit colour of S. villosum.
