Seeds of C. annuum cv. PC 1 were exposed to gamma radiation at 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 kR. Sixteen morphological mutants were isolated from M2 and M3 progenies. The inheritance pattern of the mutants classified according to plant height (stunted, dwarf, semidwarf and tall), leaves (narrow, broad, small, curved, folded, round leaf tip, leaf dimorphism and elongated petiole), maturity (early flowering, late flowering and flowerless) and fruits (dark green fruit) is described.
