, respectively. Flower number was measured for each replicate using a six-point visual index. Flower index values of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 indicated that replicates had 0, 1 to 5, 6 to 10, 11 to 20, 21 to 40, and >40 flowers, respectively. Digital pictures were

Abstract results showed that many germplasms of P. Armeniaca. P. persica and a few germplasms of P. Salicina had immersed into those of P. mume. Some cultivars (strains) possessed species characteristics coming from 2 or 3 of the 3 species in a single plant. All of the plants tested were transition types of the related varieties such as var. bungo and so on. Some new characteristics of P. mume were found in a few strains. The resources were classified into highly, mediumly and lightly backcrossed types. The mean yield index and fruit weight of highly back-crossed type (HB) were significantly higher than those of the other 2 types. The setting rate of HB was higher and significantly higher than that of lightly and mediumly type, respectively. There were no significant differences in mean bitter index and flower index among them.

(measured at basal end of panicle) to determine flower index. Flower index was determined using the formula for total surface area of a cone {(π × half-width 2 ) + [(π × half-width) × √(half-width 2 + height 2 )]}, using flower length and flower half

this was not totally unexpected. The flower index for each week was computed from the number of flowers divided by the growth index. At the end of the experiments, plants were harvested and separated into roots and shoots. Roots were washed in a large
