Reciprocal crosses between Cucumis africanus L. f. and C. metuliferus Naud. II. Embryo development in vivo and in vitro



Reciprocal crosses between Cucumis africanus L. f. and C. metuliferus Naud. II. Embryo development in vivo and in vitro



Report, Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative (3): 50-51



Embryos from the reciprocal crosses increased in length in vivo at about the same rate for about four weeks after pollination in the reciprocal crosses but thereafter the rate was higher in C. metuliferus X C. africanus than in the reciprocal. Cotyledon development was restricted after embryos reached a length of 1.2 mm in C. africanus X C. metuliferus but not in the reciprocal.
