Fruit analysis of pepper androgenic lines P3 and P4 (Capsicum annuum L. cv. Piran) in different maturation stages
In this paper are presented the results of fruit analysis of androgenic lines R3 and R4 compared to variety Piran (control) utilised for their generation in the process of androgenesis. During four-years experiment were examined ten fruit morphological characteristics in horticulturally and physiologically mature stages from the androgenic line P3 and P4 and the control: mass, length, width, index (shape), number of locules, fruit flesh, pericarp thickness, dry matter in fresh fruit and seed number and weight in fruit.
According to the presented results of this research each of the androgenic line P3 and P4 differs for three characteristics of the fruit compared to the original genotype Piran.
