PEA pollen is normally orange in colour. However, a plant having pollen of a light yellow colour was noticed amongst seedlings raised from some old stocks of the variety Vinco. The yellow colour bred true in subsequent generations. Crossing with an orange variety indicated a monofactorial difference with complete dominance of orange. Additional crosses were then undertaken to confirm this preliminary finding and establish if possible the linkage relations of the new locus.
