Seedling explants of three tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) and four bell pepper (Capsicum annuum) cultivars consisting of the radicle, the hypocotyl and one cotyledon were obtained after removing the primary and axillary meristems. After 14 days of incubation on solid Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium without growth regulators, explants of both species regenerated multiple shoots on the cut surface (2.9–5.3 shoots per explant for tomato and 1.2–2.2 for bell pepper cultivars). After excision, the… CONTINUE READING
