Abstract

Four gene pairs governing the inheritance of conspicuous morphological characters in lima beans are described. They are:

Dd—indeterminate (vine) vs. determinate (bush) habit of growth.

Vv—variegated vs. nonvariegated leaflets.

Wlwl—lanceolate vs. ovate leaflets; Wlwl produces ovate-lanceolate leaflets.

Crcr—normal vs. crinkled leaflets.
