Brassica oleracea genotypes displaying interesting fatty acid profiles for Brassica napus breeding.


F. Seyis

Brassica oleracea (CC) normally displays an erucic acid (22:1) content ranging from 28 to 63%. In the course of studies dealing with the inheritance of erucic acid content in the seed oil of Brassica species individual plants belonging to three accessions of B. oleracea conv. capitata - Kashirka 202, Ladozhskaya DS 8395 and Eisenkopf - were identified displaying low, intermediary and high erucic acid content. The fatty acid profiles of these cabage genotypes and their potential use in Brassica napus breeding is discussed.
