Inheritance of fruit color in sweet cherries

Inheritance of fruit color in sweet cherries

Jour Heredity 49(6): 294-298

Segregation among 1227 seedlings from 15 variety crosses suggests the same factor controls flesh color and mahogany skin color. A 2d skin color factor darkens the shade of mahogany in the presence of the major dominant or in its absence produces light red when homozygous dominant and pink blush when heterozygous. Incomplete dominant epistasis gives the illusion of quantitative inheritance of skin color.
