  1. Data from six replicates. CL: capsule length; CW: capsule width; SSL: short spike length; MSL: medium spike length; LSL: long spike length; LL: leaf length; LW: leaf width; CoL: corolla length; CaL: calyx length; SC: stem color. Within each column, means followed by common letter(s) did not differ significantly at p < 0.05 according to the Duncan’s multiple range test. nv: no value for this character.
