Somatic hybrids between navel orange (Citrus sinensis) and grapefruit (C. paradisi) for seedless triploid breeding

Abstract

Protoplasts from cell suspension cultures of ‘Bonnaza’ navel orange (Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck) were electrically fused with mesophyll protoplasts isolated from seedless ‘Red Blush’ grapefruit (Citrusparadisi). After 6 months of culture, a total of 20 plants were regenerated. Root tip chromosome counting revealed that 4 of them were tetraploids (2n = 4x… (More)
