Effect of uniconazole-P (Un-P) and GA on penetrance of the pickle phenotype. For each treatment, 144 seeds were incubated at 22°C in continuous light (60 μE m−2s−1) on synthetic media (4) containing uniconazole-P or GA4 at the indicated concentrations. Germination and the pickle phenotype were scored at 10 days. Expression of the pickle phenotype was calculated as a percentage of total seeds and as a percentage of seeds that germinated.
