I am trying desperately to find a chromosome map of a
seedless watermelon and the point at which the change occurs to make it
seedless. I am a 7th grader and my teacher has given me a bunch of
Internet search phrases to use, but none of them take me to an actual
chromosome map. Do you know where I can find such a map?
Seedless watermelons are triploid, i.e., 3 sets of chromosomes.
