A gardener crosses tall true-breeding pea plants with short true-breeding ones. Tall plants are dominant to short ones. He collects the seeds to grow F1 plants and then allows them to self-pollinate to form an F2 generation. Which of the following describes the traits of the offspring correctly?

    Most likely F2 plants and tall breeding pea plants.

    If the parental plants (P-generation) have the genotypes TT (tall) and tt (short), respectively, all the F1 plants will be tall heterozygotes (genotype Tt). Those Tt-plants will (statistically) have the following distribution of genotypes and phenotypes among their offspring (the F2 generation): 25% TT (tall homozygotes); 50% Tt (tall heterozygotes) and 25% tt (short homozygotes). In other words: 3/4 of the offspring will have the tall phenotype (genotypes TT and Tt); and 1/4 will be short plants (genotype tt). - Try a Punnett square to visualize the different crosses...
