A high beta-carotene cucumber inbred line 'EOM 402-10' (S4; orange flesh) was developed from the evaluation of three previous population derived from U.S. pickling cucumber x XIS. The inbred line 'EOM 402-10' and 'Gy7' (gynoecious, non beta-carotene, white flesh) were crossed to produce F1, F2, BC1P1 and BC1 P2 segregating progenies. Evaluation of segregating progenies indicated that two recessive genes control the beta-carotene content in the mesocarp, while one recessive gene controls the beta-carotene content in the endocarp.... F2 progeny in GH1 and GH2, respectively, and 62 and 40 progeny of each backcross in GH1 and GH2, respectively. All fruits were set by manual self- pollination or backcrossed to a#39;EOM 402-10a#39; (P2). Data Collection Mesocarp and endocarpanbsp;...
