Confirmation of cross-fertilization using molecular markers in ornamental passion flower hybrids

L. D. H. C. S. Conceição, Souza, M. M., Cerqueira-Silva, C. B. M., Corrêa, R. X., Belo, G. O., and Santos, S. F., Confirmation of cross-fertilization using molecular markers in ornamental passion flower hybrids, vol. 10. pp. 47-52, 2011.

Several interspecific Passiflora hybrids are produced in the northern hemisphere for the ornamental plant market. In Brazil, production of passion flower hybrids is limited to the introgression of genes into the main cultivated species, yellow passion fruit, to be used as rootstocks. Confirmation of hybridization in the initial developmental stage is important for breeding perennial and sub-perennial plants, such as passion flowers, reducing time and costs in plant stock maintenance.
