As regards the flower color I construct at the researches of H. TEDIN, who was once type sufficient to spare me his varieties for my examine. In a fashion it's a chuffed accident that the variety of flower shades of the pea is quite small, which renders the study surveyable. Of the identified varieties I now own a pretty whole assortment, pains being continuously taken to complement the gathering. The study at the heredity of the size of stem continues to be in its preliminary degree. So giant a few kinds exist that i've got extra fabric at my disposal than will be labored up. The researches have been made within the Genetic Institute of the nation collage of Groningen.
