Anatomy of a new sepaloid mutant flower in sugarbeet



Anatomy of a new sepaloid mutant flower in sugarbeet



Journal of Sugar Beet Research 28(1-2): 23-30



A mutant sugarbeet plant with clusters of 12-20 flowers was discovered in progeny of a male-sterile plant from the NC-7 collection of Beta crossed with inbred NB-1. Anatomical studies revealed that most flowers had 10-25 sepals instead of the normal 5. Anthers were not produced in any of the flowers. Pistil development was highly variable; some flowers had no ovules, some possessed exposed or naked ovules, and a few appeared normal.
