Lentils from south Asia differ markedly in days to flower and several other traits from lentils in other major lentil producing areas of the world such as west Asia. Single-gene inheritance and a polygenic system were observed to control days to flower in lentil (Lens culinaris Medikus subsp, culinaris), Early flowering was determined by a single recessive gene (sn), Early flowering transgressive segregants occurred in F-2 populations due to the interaction of sn and minor genes for earliness, Pubescent peduncle (Pep) was inherited as a single gene dominant to glabrous peduncle (pep), Tendrilless leaf (tnl) was controlled by a single gene recessive to tendrilled leaf (Tnl), The Sn, Sep (seed coat pattern), and Pep loci were linked together in linkage group 5 and Tnl was linked with Gs (colored stem) in linkage group 1 of the lentil genome.
