    • Abstract


      The inheritance of a “purple anthocyanin” character in apples is described.Malus Neidzwetzkyana was found to differ fromM. Malus in having a single dominant gene for “purple pigmentation”. Great variation was found within the “purple” plants, probably due to the segregation of modifiers.

      A technique for increasing the percentage of germination by removing the testa is described. The percentage of scorable plants was increased from 56 to 99. No differential viability of the “green” and “purple” embryos was found.
