    • Abstract

       

      Reciprocal hybrids were obtained betweenSolanum pubescens (non-spinous taxon) andSolanum incanum andSolanum indicum (spinous taxa) through modified hand pollination technique. The aspects studied relate to the cytomorphology of the F1 and F2 hybrids. On the basis of these studies it is concluded thatSolanum pubescens, Solanum incanum andSolanum indicum are cross compatible and have considerable homologies among them. The F1 hybrids were partially pollen sterile.
