Somatic embryogenesis, micropropagation and plant regeneration of "Early Mature" walnut trees (Juglans regia) that flower in vitro.

Abstract

Some walnut trees (Juglans regia L.) originating from central Asia display an early flowering phenotype. These "Early Mature" (EM) trees may produce flowers within months of germination. Secondary flowering waves are also observed within a growing season. Inflorescences may carry male, female and hermaphrodite flowers. Progeny obtained from selected EM… (More)
