Next generation question
    #3796540 - 02/18/05 01:54 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I know my plants well. But I'm not too keen on genetics and breeding and such. Short story: I live in the south and thus have fairly tropical temps. We had one hard freeze this year(which ended my rivea and many other beauties :frown:), but my arugula survived. In fact, it all turned purple. Very much healthy, but very dark purple. Very cool, I thought. Now, this aurugula has bolted to flower. I am curious as to whether this next generation will have the posibility of the purple being passed down from the parent. Probablt slim chance, but I'm curious.

Punnett squares and what not; I think you have to first find out if the purple is a dominant or recessive trait if it is at all related to genetics of the plant.

could try and breed it through. i do not think it would breed through due to teh fact it environmental, but i guess its possible.

does it taste different? smell different? different shape/size? or is colour the only noticeable? some plants jsut naturally change sometimes. look at wandering jew. not saying this is like that and that drastic but somthing to keep in mind.

The only difference is the color. Aside from that arugula becomes overly peppery and kinda gross tasting after it bolts. I figured it wouldn't breed in, because like someone said it IS environmental. Thanks guys.

If the purple is from the cold shock, then there is absolutely no possibility whatsoever of the trait being passed on to the next generation. Plants sprout with all of their genetic traits encoded into their genes. Genetic traits can't by any means be aquired later in life.

At least you have a purple arugula. Sounds pretty cool if you ask me.

Thanks  :thumbup:

Yea it is REALLY cool to look at. I would sell it at the market but it's too bitter and hot for most people's tastes.
