Artificial pollination of the sterile and parthenocarpic Gros Michel banana (somatic chromosome number 33) by a fertile
Of ten plants raised from such seeds and examined cytologically, eight have 44 somatic chromosomes and two about 75. The former resemble their female parent, and have parthenocarpic fruits but an increased pollen fertility; the latter are thick-leaved, dwarf, and apparently sterile.
Of five plants, forming an
The course of events suggests that the basic haploid chromosome number in this series is eleven. The meiotic phenomena are not inconsistent with that hypothesis, but they further suggest that the eleven is a secondary haploid number, possibly derived from an original eight.

The Mysore banana seeds more readily than Gros Michel when pollinated by
Of nine hybrids raised and studied, six have 44 somatic chromosomes and resemble their female parent in vegetative habit, two are thick-leaved dwarfs comparable both in habit and in chromosome number with similar types raised from Gros Michel, and one with 33 somatic chromosomes is intermediate in vegetative characters between its parents.
Pollinated by the tetraploid Gros Michel seedling I.C. 1, Mysore gave two hybrids, of which one has approximately 55 chromosomes in its somatic cells, and the other approximately 90. Both are thick-leaved, and the latter is also dwarf and almost certainly sterile.
