Embryogenic tissue was produced from kernels of immature fruits of Pistachio (Pistacia vera L.) cultured in liquid Murashige and Skoog media, supplemented with 200 mgl−1 casein hydrolysate, 114 μM 1-ascorbic acid, and benzylaminopurine. Compact embryogenic masses differentiated directly from the fruit explants after culture for 2 weeks in liquid medium with 8.9 μM benzylaminopurine. After transfer of the embryogenic masses into the same medium, but with 4.4 μM benzylaminopurine, somatic embryos… CONTINUE READING
