A CASE OF FUNCTIONAL MALE STERILITY IN SOLANUM INSANUM L.

Published on

Functional male sterility was recorded in a plant of Solanum insanum L., a weedy relative
of eggplant, S. melongena L. The plant showed regular bivalent formation during
microsporogenesis, high pollen viability, and normal fruit and seed set on artificial
self-pollination. But the anthers were indehiscent and the pollen grains degenerated
within the anther locules.
 

Keywords: Solanum insanum L., functional male sterility.
