The closely related inbred lines studied differed in the pH and actual redox potential (Eh) of their reproductive organs. In heterotic hybrids, the pH ratio ovary : anther (maternal line : paternal line) was somewhat lower in many cases than in nonheterotic hybrids. The Eh of the anthers was lower than that of the stigma.
