Anther Culture in Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.)

  • Liljana Koleva-Gudeva


Somatic embryogenesis has been defined as the developmental process producing a perfect embryo from a single cell, which achieves bipolar at as a stage as occurs in zygotic embryogenesis. The main achievement of these examination was to establish in vitro effective technology for haploid and diploid plant regenerants; induction of embryogenesis from microspores in pepper anther culture as well as micropropagation in vitro of pepper regenerants. Induction of somatic embryogenesis from anther pepper culture was obtained in five from nine exanimate varieties of pepper.
