  1. For each trait, at least one common letter indicates no significant difference according to the Duncan test (P = 0.05). Mean value of yields per plant, number of fruits and fruit weight of two transgenic hybrids (P1 and P10) and their corresponding untransformed hybrids (C1 and C10), cultivated during summertime under open field conditions.
