Abstract

A new chlorophyll-deficient mutant is the first cytoplasmically inherited trait described in melon. This mutant is characterized by yellow apices, with the leaves and stems progressively turning green in color as the branches mature. A protocol is proposed for naming and symbolizing cytoplasmic traits in melon. This mutation is named yellow-tip and is symbolized cyt-Yt. As a chlorophyll-deficient mutation, it is potentially useful in genetic, physiological, and biochemical studies.
