BREEDING BEHAVIOUR OF BLACK PEPPER

Published on

Three cultivars of black pepper evaluated for breeding behaviour revealed high potency of
autogamy and self-compatibility. High autogamy did not exactly reflect high
self-compatibility. Water was found not essential for pollination. However, berry set under
water-free condition was less than under open pollination. Cultivars differed in their
breeding behaviour under water-free pollination. Good spike and berry set was observed
in insect- proof cage. Indication of apomictic reproduction was also observed.
