The plasmon constitution of 68 different accessions of cultivated peanuts (Arachis hypogaea L.) was studied in crosses with one or another of three testers: V4, VSM and HG1, having the [V4], [O] and [G] plasmons, respectively. The plasmons interact differently with three plasmon-sensitive nuclear genes, thereby determining whether the plants will be erect or trailing. From the phenotypes of the reciprocal F1 hybrids it was concluded that the [G] plasmon of HG1 is rare-it is present in this cultivar and possibly in a few other; the [V4] plasmon is rare, being present in the V4 cultivar and possibly in a few other accessions; the [O] plasmon is widespread, being present in lines from various geographical origins and in at least three of the four botanical types of cultivated peanuts.
