Selection of autotetraploid and its morphological characteristics in Meiwa kumquat (Fortunella crassifolia Swingle)

Selection of autotetraploid and its morphological characteristics in Meiwa kumquat (Fortunella crassifolia Swingle)

Horticultural Research Japan 4(2): 141-146

A tetraploid of Meiwa kumquat (Fortunella crassifolia) was selected from nucellar seedlings using root morphology, and its morphological characteristics were studied. One seedling with thick short rootlets was obtained from 457 seedlings. Flow cytometry and chromosome observation demonstrated that the seedling is tetraploid (2n=4X=36). This tetraploid was presumed by RAPD analysis to have been derived from nucellar embryos.
