A new form of genetic female sterility in Capsicum annuum L

A new form of genetic female sterility in Capsicum annuum L

Scientia Horticulturae 18(1): 25-29

During evaluation of genotypes of pepper (C. annuum L.), a female-sterile mutant was observed in 1 line. The mutant also exhibited flat stem and rosette branching habit. The stamens were functional and pollen fertility was normal. Style and stigma were petaloid and non-functional. A single recessive gene caused the sterility and the other aberrant characteristics. The possible use of this mutant in a hybrid seed production program in pepper is indicated.
