Parthenocarpic potential in Capsicum annuum L. is enhanced by carpelloid structures and controlled by a single recessive gene

Academic Journal
The article presents information on a study which analyzes ovule development in Capsicum annuum and compares aberrant ovule development and carpelloid transformation with parthenocarpic fruit set. Parthenocarpy improves fruit quality and this trait is found in some genotype of Capsicum annuum. Sometimes carpel-like structures are found in seedless fruits obtained from these genotypes.

    Fruit shape is a very important fruit quality character frequently affected by grafting in vegetable plants like pepper. It has already been shown that, similar to tomato, fruit shape in pepper is likely controlled by an Ovate-like gene, CaOvate, the down-regulation of which positively affects...

    Quantitative trait loci (QTL) analyses in pepper are common for horticultural, disease resistance, and fruit quality traits; although none of the studies to date have used sequence-based markers associated with genes. In this study we measured plant architectural, phenological, and fruit quality...

    Anthracnose, caused by Colletotrichum capsici, is a major disease of chilli ( Capsicum annuum L.) affecting both fruit and seed quality. The pathogen is both internally and externally seedborne. However, a rapid and sensitive method for detection of this pathogen in seeds is currently limited....
