'Prima': new carrot cultivar resistant to premature flowering

Horticultura Brasileira 10(1): 44-45

'Prima': new carrot cultivar resistant to premature flowering

Prima (line AFX272) was selected by several cycles of recurrent selection from Brasilia. It is resistant to bolting during spring and autumn cultivation and to Alternaria dauci. It has dark-orange, cylindrical roots with 18-20 cm length and 3.0-3.5 cm diameter, and vigorous, dark-green, upright leaves of 40-60 cm height.

Five clones were isolated from 5 different amino acid analog-resistant D. carota L. cv. Sativa and N. tabacum L. cv. Xanthi cell lines. The individual clones were similar in their resistance to DL-5-methyltryptophan, S-(2-aminoethyl)-L-cysteine, o...

Bolting was least when the seed was sown between 6 and 24 September and...

Two main alterations occurred in the resistence cells: an over-production of proline and of some other amino acids and a reduced rate of uptake ei...
