A true breeding Short Thick Fruit Mutant was isolated in the M2 generation of the
green-white stripe variety of Trichosanthes anguina after treatment with 30 kR X-rays. The
mutant differed from the mother line in shape and size of the fruits. Genetic analysis
revealed that fruit characteristics are monogenic and recessive in nature.
Keywords: Trichosanthes anguina, X-ray, mutant.
