‘Taichung No. 5’: A Short Plant Height with High Grain Yield Job’s Tears Cultivar

in HortScience

Coix lacryma-jobi L., also named as job’s tears, is widely cultivated and applied as food and herbal medicine, especially in Asia (Aradilla, 2018; Arora, 1977). Low genetic diversity at the species and accession levels but a strong genetic variation among all accessions tested by intersimple sequence repeat markers was shown in a previous study (Xi et al., 2016). The authors also reported that the proportion of triglyceride in the accessions test could be a useful indicator for quality control. In addition, job’s tears cultivar Thai Black Loei, which has antiproliferative activity and apoptosis,
