Evaluating the Seed Propagation Potential of Selected Vietnamese Black Pepper Varieties (Piper nigrum)


Sexual hybridation is primary method for black pepper breeding in order to select good varieties with higher productivity, yield, quality as well as resistance to disease and environmental risks. Research showed that white pepper seeds germinated after 13-27 days after incubation, most of seeds were germinated 15-23 days after incubation with 56,1-86,9% of seeds germinated. The three-month old seedlings of  H-DP6 and  H-L1 showed better growth with good plants accounted for 54,17 and 80,83%, respectively.
