Colchicine-induced tetraploids were obtained from the variety Taka no Tsume of Capsicum annuum. A haploid and a hypotriploid were also obtained. Meiosis in the haploid was highly irregular, and no pairing occurred. The tetraploids behaved more regularly; 24 bivalents were often formed, with occasional univalents and multivalents. The higher polyploids displayed the usual gigas characters.
