Creation of triploid citrus hybrids by electrofusion of haploid and diploid protoplasts






Acta Horticulturae ( 535): 191-197

Creation of triploid citrus hybrids by electrofusion of haploid and diploid protoplasts

Seedlessness is a major criterion for the citrus fresh fruit market. Triploidy breeding therefore appears very promising for the selection of new citrus cultivars. CIRAD has developed a new method for triploid synthesis, achieved by somatic hybridization between diploid and haploid lines. This method makes it possible to add, without recombination, a haploid genome to the whole diploid genome of high organoleptic quality cultivars.
