Studies on morphological characterization of interspecific F1 hybrids of brinjal (Solanum melongena L.)


Author(s): PB Sanap, SD Warade and VP Damodhar

Abstract: An interspecific hybridization programme in brinjal was undertaken with two brinjal (S.melongena L.) cultivars [viz., Ruchira and Phule Harit] and one wild species Solanum insanum. The morphological characterization of two interspecific F1 hybrids was carried out along with one reciprocal cross (F1). It was important to note that an intermediate plant morphology was noticed in all the F1 hybrids. The dominant wild characters observed in F1 hybrids were spinyness and protruded stigma where spinyness was the prime important character to offer resistance against little leaf disease.
