- ... In almond, the presence of double seeded nuts significantly reduces their commercial value. For this reason, in breeding programs of this species, seedlings producing double seeds are usually eliminated. In order to avoid this trait in the offspring and increase the efficiency of the breeding programs it is important to know its genetic control. In this work, heritability of double seeds was estim ...

- ... The inheritance of 16 important agronomic traits and its relationship were studied for four years in a population of 167 almond [P. dulcis (Mill.) D.A. Webb] seedlings obtained from a cross between the French selection `R1000' (`Tardy Nonpareil' x `Tuono') and the Spanish cultivar `Desmayo Largueta'. For some traits (blooming and leafing date) descendants segregated between the value of both proge ...
