SummaryThe effects of low night temperatures on pollen viability and pollen grain morphology were investigated in bell pepper (Capsicum annuum, L.) commercial hybrids ‘Latino’ and ‘Novi’. Night temperatures of 10 and 15°C decreased pollen viability, estimated by an in vitro assay and acetocarmine staining, and by decreased seed number per fruit. At anthesis, in a separate experiment, pollen grains that developed at low temperature (25/14°C, day/night) were smaller and appeared aggregated and… CONTINUE READING
