Abstract

Assessment of genetic purity of F1 interspecific hybrids of Chilli pepper (Capsicum L.)

Two F1 interspecific hybrids (H1&H2) of chilli pepper (Capsicum) were obtained by reciprocally between C. annuum var. X-235 and C. frutescens L. and were studied for identification and genetic purity via cytomorphological and SDS-PAGE seed protein profiles. Cytogenetic analysis of F1 hybrids showed that the parental genomes differ from each other by 2 or 1 translocations, 1 inversion and some minor structural alterations. Meiotic irregularities, pollen and seed sterilities were higher in H1 than H2. It was observed that decreased seed protein profiles were encountered in F1 hybrids
