Table 1 Greenhouse crosses performed with hybrid OFP plants

From: An orange fluorescent protein tagging system for real-time pollen tracking

  1. a Crosses listed by (female ♀ × male ♂).
  2. b Refers to numbers of each plant used in crosses with respect to the plant order in the genotypes column. 12 crosses were attempted between each pair of plants, except one pair of hybrid OFP and SN 2108 where 11 crosses were made.
  3. c A ‘cross’ is constituted by a pollen transfer from one plant to the flower of another plant.
