Reciprocal crosses between Cucumis africanus L. f. and C. metuliferus Naud. I. Overcoming barriers to fertilization by mentor pollen and AVG



Reciprocal crosses between Cucumis africanus L. f. and C. metuliferus Naud. I. Overcoming barriers to fertilization by mentor pollen and AVG



Report, Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative (3): 60-62



Using irradiated mentor pollen in these crosses, about one-third of the developing fruit contained embryos. Application of aminoethoxyvinylglycine to the flower base after pollination resulted in a low fruit set but all the fruits contained ovules (generally many) with embryos.
