In vitro androgenesis is a new powerful and safe method for haploidinduction, where the vegetative or generative nucleus from the pollen grain isstimulated for development in haploid shoot, without further fertilization.Although, the adrogenesis is possible for many agricultural varieties and trees, adrogenetic response for microspore propagation is very limited procedure, andoften is restricted on one genotype or variety. The reason for this restrictiveappearance is still unknown and often the successful genotypes are withoutcommercial importance.The purpose of this examination was to established in vitro antherculture of several varieties of pepper. The callus induction was examinee ofseveral different mediums with different temperature induction treatment.
