. Observations in this study indicated that a miracle fruit flower took 100 d to develop from reproductive meristem to full anthesis and the flower development can be divided into six stages where both male and female reproductive organs were found developing

and pastures ( Hirata et al., 2007 ). Reproductive biology of M. sinensis has been studied in both wild populations and cultivars of diploid plants. Stewart et al. (2009) documented seed set (percentage of florets setting seed) among wild

reproductive barriers makes it difficult to obtain the hybrids and influences the utilization of excellent traits from tropical water lilies. Few studies have been taken to investigate the cross barriers in water lily; therefore, the factors affecting seed set

, growth can be calculated from bloom through maturation in deciduous trees ( Stajnko et al., 2013 ; Zavalloni et al., 2006 ) using specific reproductive organs as biomarkers. Female flowers usually have three functional structures: stigma, style, and

Climate is one of several factors that can greatly influence growth and development of reproductive organs, which in turn can have an effect on crop yield. The effects of climate on reproductive growth have been observed in many diverse crops
