The interrelation of sugary endosperm, virescent, and brindled, a chlorophyll defect, was studied. Brindled was found to be a simple Mendelian recessive to normal green. Brindled and virescent proved to be independent in inheritance. The double recessive condition of the factors for virescent and brindled produces an albino plant. The brindled character and sugary endosperm showed a linkage (in the repulsion phase) with 26.3 percent crossing-over.
