Effect of Genetically Diverse Pollen on Pollination, Pollen Tube Overgrow, Fruit Set and Morphology of Kiwiberry (Actinidia arguta)

Successful pollination and fertilization are crucial processes for obtaining a high yield, especially for dioecious plants such as A. arguta. Determination of pollen tube growth on stigma and fruit development parameters, which were investigated in this study, can enable the evaluation of male–female compatibility—one of the factors of successful pollination. Pollen quality and grain size were analysed for two years on six male cultivars of A. arguta and one of A. chinensis var. deliciosa…

Choice of pollen parent affects red flesh colour in seedlings of diploid Actinidia chinensis (kiwifruit)

Following pollination with A. deliciosa pollen, fruit set, fresh weight, dry matter content, and seed weight and number were reduced, and the most striking effect was on fruit flesh colour: the proportion of seedlings expressing red pigmentation, the intensity of pigmentation and the anthocyanin concentration were greatly reduced.

Pollination, fertilization and fruit formation in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.)

The aim of the investigations was to determine the regularity of pollination and fertilization as dependent on the phenotype of flower in eggplant and there was not observed any incompatibility in the growth on pollen tubes in the styles of all types of eggplant flowers.

Morphological variation of male A. arguta plants affects their flowering potential and pollen efficiency

Male kiwiberry indicators developed in this study appear to be effective tools for the comparative evaluation of male A. arguta genotypes, indicating marked differences in their flowering potential and efficiency as pollinizers.

The choice of female or male parent affects some biochemical characteristics of fruit or seed of kiwiberry (Actinidia arguta)

The obtained results indicate that to achieve desired fruit biochemical characteristics, the pollen source (male vines) should be selected individually for particular female cultivars, especially in the case of polyphenol content.

Biological features of flowers influence the fertility of Lonicera spp. cultivars

It was found that among the 40 cultivars studied, only the “Docz Velikana” cultivar exhibited PGI > 2, which proves the self-fertility tendency of this cultivar, which is conducive to effective insect pollination.

Dynamics of pollen tube growth under different competition regimes

The fact that under different pollen competition regimes the number of pollen tubes is reduced by the same proportion in each stylar level indicates that genetic interactions play an important role in the control of pollen tube attrition.
