Abstract

Mesophyll derived protoplasts of Solanum khasianum Clarke and S. aculeatissimum Jacq. were fused by electrofusion and resulted in interspecific hybrids. In total, 249 calluses were obtained from which more than 65% produced shoots. From the regenerated plantlets 45% could be identified as hybrids by chromosome counts (4x = 48) and esterase isozyme pattern. Most hybrids showing intermediate phenotypic characteristics, had a normal flower morphology with fertile pollen and produced fertile berries. More than 80% of the seeds germinated.
