Interspecific hybrid performance and meiotic chromosome behavior of F1 hybrids were studied to elucidate the genetic relationship between C. tovarii and the other Capsicum species. C. tovarii was hybridized, as a female and a male parent, to C. annuum, C. chinense, C. frutescens, C. chacoense, C. galapogense, C. baccatum, C. praetermissum, C. cardenasii, C.(More)
A core collection represents the genetic diversity of a crop with minimal redundancy. A technique is proposed for establishing a representative core collection of Capsicum annuum L., C. chinense Jacq., and C. baccatum L. from the collection maintained at the Southern Plant Genetic Resources Conservation Unit, Griffin, GA, U.S.A. The accessions were(More)
The wild species, Capsicum buforum Hunz. and C. lanceolatum(Greenm. ex J.D. Sm.) Morton and Standl. were hybridized to nine different Capsicum species to understand their taxonomic and genetic relationships. With C. buforum as the male parent, the compatibility to the nine species varied from species to species and ranged from producing under-developed(More)
