Studies of the production and viability of pollen are very important in breeding programs and for assessing the climatic adaptation of fruit species. The objective of this work was to determine the pollen production per anther and its viability from in vitro germination tests of 16 peach cultivars. The analyses were carried out at the Horticulture Laboratory with vegetable matter from the peach trees in the fruit sector of the Federal Technological University of Paraná, Dois Vizinhos, Paraná State, Brazil. The cultivars used in the research were: Bonão, BR-1, Charme, Chimarrita, Coral, Douradão, Eldorado, Fascínio, Granada, Kampai, Leonense, Marli, Regalo, Riograndense, Rubimel, and Zilli. Pollen production was obtained by counting in a Neubauer chamber. In vitro germination of pollen was obtained after incubation of pollen in culture through a controlled environment (presence of photoperiod and temperature of 25 °C). The experimental design used was completely randomized with four replications. The data were submitted to the Lilliefors normality test and to variance analysis and means comparisons by the Scott-Knott test (a = 0.05). We concluded that the winter conditions of 2016 were better for the development of the buds, which promoted greater production of pollen per anther. The cultivars Douradão, Leonense, Regalo, and Rubimel had the highest rates of pollen viability. The storage of pollen at -20 °C for 60 days reduced its average viability by 42%. Four hours of incubation with photoperiod, is enough to promote the germination of peach pollen.

Estudos sobre a produção e a viabilidade do pólen são de suma importância em programas de melhoramento genético e para a avaliação da adaptação climática das espécies frutíferas. Assim, o objetivo deste trabalho foi determinar a taxa de produção de pólen por antera e sua viabilidade em testes de germinação in vitro, de 16 cultivares de pessegueiros. As análises foram realizadas no Laboratório de Horticultura com material vegetal oriundo da coleção de pessegueiros do setor de Fruticultura, da Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná, Câmpus Dois Vizinhos-PR. As cultivares utilizadas na pesquisa foram: Bonão, BR-1, Charme, Chimarrita, Coral, Douradão, Eldorado, Fascínio, Granada, Kampai, Leonense, Marli, Regalo, Riograndense, Rubimel e Zilli. A produção de pólen foi obtida através da contagem em câmara de Neubauer. A germinação in vitro do pólen foi obtida após incubação do pólen em meio de cultura sob ambiente controlado (fotoperíodo e temperatura de 25 ºC). O delineamento experimental utilizado foi inteiramente casualizado, com quatro repetições. Os dados foram submetidos ao teste de normalidade de Lillefors, à análise de variância (ANOVA) e às comparações de médias, pelo teste de Scott-Knott, a 5%. Conclui-se que as condições de inverno de 2016 foram melhores para o desenvolvimento das gemas, o qual promoveu maior produção de pólen por antera. As cultivares Douradão, Leonense, Regalo e Rubimel obtiveram os maiores índices de viabilidade de pólen. A armazenagem do pólen a -20 ºC, por 60 dias, reduziu sua viabilidade média em 42%. Quatro horas de incubação, com fotoperíodo, é tempo suficiente para promover a germinação do pólen do pessegueiro.

The Brazil produced about 219,000 tons of peaches in 2018, in an area of 18,000 hectares, and the State of Rio Grande do Sul was the biggest national producer. In that year, Paraná also allocated 932 hectares for the cultivation of peach trees, producing about 12,000 tons of peaches (IBGE, 2020).

A large part of the state of Paraná has wavy topography, causing transient climatic diversity from the tropical to the temperate climate. Some regions therefore do not experience the number of cold hours (CH) required to overcome the dormancy of the buds of the species and cultivars, and so are considered risk zones for agricultural production (CARAMORI et al., 2008).

Thus, the adaptation of peach cultivars in the conditions of milder winters prevents the sprouting and flowering from being insufficient and sporadic, damaging the fruit production (WAGNER JÚNIOR et al., 2010).

The peach tree grows and fruits well in regions of Köppen’s Cfa climate (mesothermal, hot and rainy summer) common in the South and part of Southeast of Brazil, but is considerate the Cfb climate (humid mesothermal, with fresh and mild summers), more suitable for the species than the Cfa climate (GOMES, 2007).

Peaches are therefore more widely cultivated at 22-33° S of the Equator (PETRI et al., 2002).

Research on the evaluation and selection of cultivars has fundamental importance to understand phenological behavior and adaptations to the edaphoclimatic conditions of the region, and assist in the planting of commercial orchards of productive peach trees because the flowering, sprouting, and fruiting directly depend on environmental conditions, primarily temperature (CHAGAS et al., 2009; ALMEIDA et al., 2014).

According to Barbosa et al. (1989), peach trees with good edaphoclimatic adaptation can produce from 1,000 to 2,000 pollen grains per anther and up to 80,000 pollen grains per flower. However, several factors can influence the pollen production and viability, such as genes (cultivars), temperature in pre-flowering and flowering (NAVA et al., 2009), the development stage of flower at the time of pollen gathering, and the conditions of its storage, since the variation of humidity and ambient temperature can cause changes in the viability of pollen grains, in addition to differences between species (FRANZON; RASEIRA; WAGNER JÚNIOR, 2007).

For the assessment of pollen viability, several in vitro techniques can be used, among them the use of culture methods with agar and sucrose to provide osmotic balance and energy supply for the germination and development of pollen tubes (CHAGAS et al., 2009).

The mean of culture, temperature, and time required for germination are also important factors for the success of pollen germination; and the formation and emission of the pollen tube are determining characteristics of its viability (EINHARDT; CORREA; RASEIRA, 2006).

Based on the findings or previous research presented above, the objective of this study was to determine the production and in vitro viability of pollen from 16 peach cultivars grown in a subtropical climate.

Material and methods

This work was conducted in the collection of peach trees of the fruit sector and in the Horticulture Laboratory at the Federal Technological University of Paraná, Campus Dois Vizinhos, Southwest of Paraná, Brazil, on 25° 45ʹ 00″ S, 53° 03ʹ 25″ W. According to the Köppen classification, the local climate is humid subtropical: Cfa, with temperatures >22 °C in the hottest months and <18 °C in the coldest months, and an average rainfall of 2,025 mm per year (ALVAREZ et al., 2013).

The cultivars used in the research were: Bonão, BR-1, Charme, Chimarrita, Coral, Douradão, Eldorado, Granada, Leonense, Marli, Riograndense, Rubimel (planted in 2009), and Fascínio, Kampai, Regalo, Zilli (planted in 2014), on the Capdeboscq rootstock. The planting spacing was 4.0 × 5.0 m, and the vase plant conduction system used. The orchard was managed according to the precepts of integrated peach production.

At full bloom (about 70% of flowers opened) of each cultivar, 20 pink balloons were collected per experimental unit at random. In the laboratory, each balloon had its petals and anthers removed with tweezers, and the anthers were deposited in a petri dish for the evaluation of the following characteristics.

Pollen production-To estimate pollen production per anther, 50 anthers were randomly separated per experimental unit and placed inside a 10 mL glass vial and kept open at room temperature for seven days, so that the pollen grains were released uniformly. Subsequently, 1000 μL of lactic acid was added to suspend the pollen grains, and the vial was sealed with a rubber cap and placed in a refrigerator for later counting of the number of pollen grains per anther in a mirrored Neubauer chamber.

With the aid of a pipette, 100 mL of the suspension containing the pollen was removed and applied under the coverslip of the Neubauer chamber, so that the entire suspension drained and covered all counting fields, over which it was read under optical microscope with 10 increases (10x). The number (N) of pollen grains per anther was obtained by the equation used by Carvalho (1989), and Nava et al. (2009):

N=a*volALvolCN* 1na

a: average number of pollen grains in the sample corresponding to the treatment (cultivar);

vol AL: volume of lactic acid (mm³);

vol CN: volume of the Neubauer chamber (mm³);

na: number of anthers in the suspension.

The experimental design was completely randomized with four replications, using duplicate slides for each cultivar repetition to obtain the average number of pollen grains per anther.

In vitro viability of pollen To determine in vitro viability of pollen, pollen from the remaining anthers removed from the floral balloons was used. These anthers were kept in petri dishes at room temperature for seven days to release the pollen. The pollen from each experimental unit was then transferred to 10 mL glass vials closed with cotton and placed in a glass desiccator with silica, which was kept in a freezer for 60 days (-20 °C) after Carvalho (1989), and Nava (2007).

For the germination of pollen, a mean of culture was prepared with 1 g of agar, 10 g sucrose, and 100 mL distilled water, which was autoclaved for complete sterilization, and poured still hot into a petri dish to 3 mm thickness. After solidified, the mean of culture was cut into 2 cm × 2 cm squares and two counting fields per blade were placed to make an experimental unit. The pollen was distributed evenly over the mean of culture on the blades with the help of a brush. After depositing the pollen, the blades were placed in Gerbox® boxes with moist paper towels, simulating a humid chamber, and taken to Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) chamber, being the pollen incubated at 25 ± 0.5 °C, with a photoperiod of 16 hours.

After the incubation time, the blades were observed under a binocular biological microscope at 10 x magnification, followed by the counting of 100 pollen grains between germinated and not germinated per counting field. Pollen grains that had a pollen tube with a size equal to or greater than its diameter were considered germinated.

In 2016, two incubation times were tested in the BOD (4 and 20 hours) after drying time (seven days at room temperature, plus 60 days in a desiccator with silica at -20 °C). The experimental design was completely randomized in a 16 x 2 factorial scheme (cultivars x pollen incubation times), with 4 replicates of one blade each. In 2017, the germination of dry pollen for 7 days at ambient temperature (freshly dried) was compared with dry pollen for 7 days at ambient temperature plus 60 days in the desiccator with silica at -20 °C, for four hours of incubation in the BOD. The experimental design used was completely randomized in a 16 x 2 bifactorial scheme (cultivars x pollen storage conditions), with four replicates of one blade each.

The average pollen production and viability data were subjected to the Lilliefors normality test, transformed by

for pollen production and by
for pollen viability, as well as the variance analysis and subsequent grouping of means by the Scott-Knott test at α = 0.05, with the aid of the Genes statistical software(CRUZ, 2016).

Results and discussion

An interaction was observed between the factors tested for the average number of pollen grains per anther.

Most cultivars showed higher pollen per anther production in 2016 compared to 2017. The cultivars Bonão, Charme, Douradão, Eldorado, Granada, and Marli, despite not having high pollen production, did not differ statistically between years (Table 1), suggesting that they are less affected by climatic variations between years. In 2016, the cultivars BR-1, Kampai, Regalo, Riograndense, Rubimel, and Zilli showed the highest pollen production per anther, proving to be more demanding and responsive to the supply of cold in the winter. In the crop year 2017, the cultivars which produced the least pollen were Coral and Chimarrita, while the others were more productive; however, the difference was not significant (Table 1).

Barbosa et al. (1989) suggested that in the cultivars most adapted to the subtropical climate, the production of pollen per anther can vary between 1,000 and 2,000 grains, possibly originating up to 80,000 grains of pollen per flower.

Pollen per anther production in crop year 2016 ranged from 280 to 1,220 grains, where the cultivars Regalo, and Riograndense had a production greater than 1,000 pollen grains per anther (Table 1). Based on information from Barbosa (1989), only these last two cultivars and, possibly, also the cultivars BR-1, Kampai, Rubimel, and Zilli would have good climatic adaptation in Dois Vizinhos, Paraná State, Brazil. In that year, peaches experienced 185 cold hours (CH) ≤7.2 °C (INMET, 2018).

In the crop year 2017, the pollen grains production per anther varied from 25 to 525 (Table 1), demonstrating for this variable that the winter conditions of 2017, from May to August (107 CH ≤7.2 °C) (INMET, 2018), were less favorable to the development of floral structures, including pollen, as well as to overcome bud dormancy.

In the evaluations for pollen germination stored for 60 days at -20 °C (Table 2), comparing years, with the exception of the cultivars Charme, Douradão, and Riograndense, which were higher in 2017 and, the cultivar Kampai, which was higher in 2016, all other cultivars showed similar germination rates in the two years of evaluation, without statistical differences. These results demonstrate that in vitro pollen germination depends more strictly on the air temperature at this phenological stage (flowering), than on the cold supply to overcome the dormancy of the buds.

The cultivar with the highest germination rate in 2016 was Leonense, (30.5%). In 2017, the cultivars that showed the most viable pollen were the cultivars Douradão (30.4%), Leonense (25.7%), Regalo (28.6%), and Rubimel (23.2%) (Table 2). However, these results are much lower than those obtained by Barbosa (1991), who, when testing the conservation of peach pollen stored in a freezer desiccator (0 ± 1 °C) over a period of 60 days, obtained germination rates >70%.

Similar results to Barbosa (1991) were described by Oliveira, Maués and Kalume (2001) for the viability test of Açaí (Euterpe oleracea) pollen stored in a freezer (-10 °C) during the periods of 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. Oliveira, Maués and Kalume (2001) also found that despite a reduction in the pollen germination rate with conservation time, for one month of storage the average index was 79.6%, and for the other months the rates were 77.4%, 74.1%, and 61.3%, respectively. The low germination rates, for both years, could be associated with the same factors that generated the low levels of pollen production per anther (Table 1).

For pollen germination indexes at 7 days (drying at ambient temperature) and pollens stored for 60 days (-20 °C), it was found that the best results were at 7 days for most cultivars. The cultivars Bonão, Charme, and Kampai showed no statistical difference between the two conservation times, despite the low germination rates, especially in the last two cultivars (Table 3).

For Charme cultivar, the data seem to indicate pollen conservation stability under extreme temperature conditions. At seven days, the cultivars with the highest percentages were BR-1 (36.6%), Douradão (39.1%), Leonense (41.0%), Marli (35.9%), and Regalo (43.4%).

At 60 days, the cultivars were superior. Storage for 60 days at -20 °C reduced pollen viability by 42% (Table 3).

Although the results obtained in the present study are below an ideal 70% germination rate (BARBOSA, 1991), the pollen germination rates at seven days were acceptable (mean of 25%) which, possibly, would be sufficient to obtain good rate of effective fruiting (NAVA, 2007). Scorza and Sherman (1995) found that suitable pollen must show 50-80% germination with welldeveloped tubes. Scorza and Sherman (1995) also found, however, that the presence of some vigorous pollen tubes may still ensure moderate effective fruiting, despite the low rate of germination.

Reis et al. (2009), when carrying out germination tests of pollen grains and pollen tube length of 17 peach cultivars, report that for the initial evaluation of germination without pollen storage in freezer, most cultivars showed satisfactory germination levels (50- 80%). For grains stored for 90 days at a temperature of -16.5 °C, they maintained their germination viability at 60%.

In germination tests of guabirobeira (Campomanesia xanthocarpa berg) pollen stored for 90 days (-18 °C) lost viability, with a reduced rate of 43.8 to 1.0% (FRANZON; RASEIRA; WAGNER JÚNIOR, 2006).

Franzon and Raseira (2006) found, in contrast, that pollen grains of cherry (Eugenia involucrata) stored for 90 days at a temperature of -16.5 °C maintained their germination viability at 60%. This demonstrates that cold pollen conservation is highly variable among species.

For pollen to maintain its viability at satisfactory levels for agricultural production, dissociated from the storage time, it is necessary to consider the factors of temperature, relative humidity of the environment, and also the degree of humidity of the pollen grain at the time of storage (GOMES et al., 2000).

For pollen germination, when comparing incubation times in BOD, it was found that the means for germination rates of 4 and 20 hours did not differ significantly, with an average rate of 14.5% (Table 4). Four-hour of incubation at 25 °C under photoperiod is therefore sufficient for pollen germination to occur.

Chimarrita, Douradão, Kampai, Leonense, Regalo, and Rubimel were the cultivars that presented the best germination rates (above 20 %) (Table 4). However, according to Nava (2007), none of the cultivars exceeded 70% germination, which would be expected in wellmanaged orchards of cultivars adapted to the climate.


Winter conditions in 2016 were better for bud development, promoting greater production of pollen per anther.

The cultivars Douradão, Leonense, Regalo, and Rubimel had higher pollen viability.

The storage of peach pollen for 60 days at -20 °C reduces its viability by 42%.

Four-hour incubation time, with photoperiod, is sufficient to promote the germination of peach pollen.
