1a. Objectives (from AD-416):
Evaluate the occurrence of and establish the concentrations of capsiate in fruit of Capsicum annuum and related species.
1b. Approach (from AD-416):
Fruits will be produced in Georgia and shipped to Maine for processing and analysis via HPLC for the concentration of capsiate and related compounds.
3. Progress Report:
Evaluation of Capsicum is conducted in support of Parent Project #6607-21000-011-00D Objective 3: Conduct genetic characterizations and phenotypic evaluations of the preceding crops and related wild species for priority genetic and agronomic traits. Insufficient resources precluded the production and harvesting of fruit for analysis. Hence, no analyses were performed.
