In castor, Ricinus communis L. inheritance of anthocyanin pigment on stem (APS), bloom, capsule spinyness and cup shape of leaves is monogenic. Capsule spinyness is a co-dominant character and bloom is controlled by multiple alleles. Inheritance of papaya leaf lacination is digenic and shows dominant epistasis. Co-segregation studies revealed absence of linkage between the characters bloom, leaf shape, and APS
