A BC3F1 generation of 9-1(D) pawpaw, a dioecious type with red-pulp fruits produced from the cross between CO.2 and M1R(D), was obtained by repeated crossing with M1R(D) for three generations. Some 426 plants from this generation, grown from December 1998 to May 2000 in Tamil Nadu, India, were evaluated for genetic variability in terms of fruit yield and quality.
