Examination of Flower Bud Initiation and Differentiation in `Redhaven` Peach by Using Scanning Electron Microscope

Hakan Engin and Nasar Iqbal

Abstract:
Flower initiation and development in `Redhaven` Peach (Prunus persica L.) was examined using scanning electron microscope. The samples were taken every 10 days from 20 June to 10 Oct. and stored in FAA (10% Formalin, 50% Ethanol, 5% Glacial Acetic Acid). On July, 7, 107 days after anthesis (DAA), a doming of the apex signified the initial change from the vegetative to the reproductive stage. After this stage, floral primordia developed in the order of sepal, petal, stamen and carpel. Sepal primordia were evident on 22 Aug. 153 DAA, petal primordia were evident on 31 Aug. 162 DAA. Rings of stamen primordia had formed by 15 Sep. followed by carpel differentiation. These organs of the flower gained their normal forms by the end of September.2
