Plants in tropical regions experience temperature fluctuation only in non-extreme ambient temperatures. Thus, moderate changes in temperatures, which they never experience in their local environments, might be sufficient to manifest the locally hidden phenotype caused by natural mutation. To validate this hypothesis, temperature-treating experiments were performed on Capsicum accessions collected from tropical regions. Thirty-six Capsicum accessions, collected from Caribbean countries, were… CONTINUE READING
