Inheritance in the cowpea II. Seed coat colour pattern; flower, plant, and pod colour



Inheritance in the cowpea II. Seed coat colour pattern; flower, plant, and pod colour



S African Jour Agric Sci 3(2): 141-162



The seed coat patterns watson, holstein, eye and hilum ring are the result of interaction between at least three genes, which also determine flower color. Purple plant color is digenic in inheritance. Purple plants have seeds of the same color, but non-purple plants may also have purple seeds. Brown and mottled colors of the pod are inherited in a simple manner but purple and cerise or red apparently result from complementary gene action.
