Effects of temperature on pollen tube growth and fruit set in reciprocal crosses between Cucumis sativus and C. metuliferus



Effects of temperature on pollen tube growth and fruit set in reciprocal crosses between Cucumis sativus and C. metuliferus



Plant Breeding 100(2): 150-153



In reciprocal crosses made in the greenhouse at 3 different temperatures to introduce disease resistance into cultivated cucumber, pollen tube growth at 20 degrees C was arrested in the stylar region of the pistil and no fruits containing embryos were found. However, at 23 degrees and 26 degrees C, C. metuliferus pollen tubes penetrated into the C. sativus ovules. The enhanced pollen tube penetration was correlated with improved embryo development.
