Allopolyploidy plays an important role in plant evolution and confers obvious advantages on crop growth and breeding compared to low ploidy levels. The present investigation was aimed at synthesising the first known chromosomally stable hexaploid Brassica with the genome constitution AABBCC. More than 2,000 putative hexaploid plants were obtained through large-scale hybridisation from various combinations of crosses between different cultivars of Brassica carinata (BBCC) and B. rapa (AA).
