In the fourth cross, vermilion sable bar entered from one side, and (red gray not-bar) wild type from the other.
The order in which these mutations occurred bears no relation to their size; each originated independently from the wild type.
When cherry (gray) females were crossed to (red) sable males the daughters were wild type and the sons cherry.
The flowers in the wild type are rosy crimson, but there is also a white variety, and seedlings give quite a variety of shades.
wild type n.
The typical form of an organism, strain, gene, or characteristic as it occurs in nature, as distinguished from mutant forms that may result from selective breeding.
