Variation in okra

Variation in okra

Euphytica 30(3): 697-705

A study of the variation of 29 characteristics of 585 varieties of seedlings of okra revealed that 17 West African varieties could be distinguished from all others on the basis of 5 discriminating characteristics. In addition, seedlings of the 3rd outcrossing generation of a population differed from a varietal collection in several characteristics, the most important of which were more seeds per pod and more pods per plant. This is probably the results of mass selection. Country groups differed significantly in characteristics but these differences are believed to be due to small sample size. No such distinguishing characteristics were evident among country groups represented by large numbers of varieties.
