EVIDENCE FOR CONTROL OF DOUBLE FLOWERING IN PEACH VIA DOMINANT SINGLE GENE LOCI

T.G. Beckman, J.X. Chaparro, W.B. Sherman
Double flowering in peach [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch] has long been thought to be controlled solely by a single recessive gene (Di/di). Several hybrid populations were generated utilizing sources tracing to a single double flowered phenotype. Evidence is presented for two loci controlling double flowers. The first is the known single gene recessive and a second controlled by a single dominant gene. Data from several populations generated with the dominant locus and information on a follow-up survey and test crosses will be presented.
