Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) is an important vegetable crop that can be improved using plant tissue culture and biotechnology. However, it is difficult to develop appropriate breeding material by in vitro cultivation in this species. Haploid plant production is useful in the breeding programs to facilitate recovery of recessive mutations and unique genetic(More)
Haploid plant production via anther culture is a valuable tool to rapidly create pure lines for plant breeding programs. Some sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) varieties produce embryogenic anther culture readily, while others do not respond at all. The switching of microspore developmental program from gametophyte- to sporophyte-type is regulated by(More)
