  • a Fruit shape is measured as the average ratio of length to diameter of fruit in the recombinant and nonrecombinant class, respectively.

  • b Significance of Student's t-test: ***, P < 0.001; NS, not significant. Only parents heterozygous for sun show significant differences in progeny tests for genotypic classes.

  • A score of 2 indicates heterozygous; 3 indicates homozygous LA716.
