  1. (CV%) Coefficient of variation
  2. aThe averages for the 2C DNA followed by the same letter did not differ statistically from one another by the Scott-Knott group at 0.05% with DMS: 0.0647
  3. bDuring the duration of this study seeds of the medium and large variants have not been found and cytometry analyses were performed on seedlings obtained by donation
