Solution

Mendel selected the garden pea Pisum sativum for his experiments on inheritance for the following reasons:-

  • Garden pea is an annual plant with a short lifespan of 3 to 4 months.
  • It is self-pollinating.
  • It is available in many varieties with contrasting characters.
  • The flowers are large enough for easy emasculation which is required for artificial crossing and to produce fertile offspring.
