Micropropagation of rootstock and production of interspecific hybrids by embryo culture in Cucurbita


Journal of the Korean Society for Horticultural Science 32(2): 137-145
Micropropagation of rootstock and production of interspecific hybrids by embryo culture in Cucurbita
Experiments were conducted to develop (1) micropropagation system for rootstock plants and (2) embryo rescue techniques allowing interspecific hybridization. Some of the characteristics of interspecific hybrids obtained were also investigated. Embryo germination in C. ficifolia was favourable on MS medium containing 6% sucrose, and successful multiple shoots could be obtained by reculturing shoot tips from developing seedlings in MS media supplemented with 0.5-1.0 mg benzyladenine (BA)/litre.
