A true breeding mutant having free corolla lobes, designated as polypetalous mutant was obtained in sesame (Sesamum indicum Linn.), after irradiating seeds of cv N62-32 with 1·6 kr fast neutrons. The inheritance pattern indicated that the polypetalous corolla is monogenic recessive to the gamopetalous corolla characteristic of sesame and the family Pedaliaceae. After crossing to another induced mutant having gamopetalous corolla with a band of pink coloured dots, a genetic stock with two recessive markers was isolated.
