Controlled pollination transfer of a nuclear male-sterile gene from a diploid to a tetraploid watermelon line

Controlled pollination transfer of a nuclear male-sterile gene from a diploid to a tetraploid watermelon line

Euphytica 35(2): 633-638

A recessive gene (ms) for male sterility was transferred from a diploid to a tetraploid Citrullus lanatus line through a series of controlled pollinations. Progeny testing and morphological characteristics confirmed the development of tetraploid lines with the ms gene, which also caused a glabrous condition facilitating identification.
