In vitro conservation of Cape gooseberry through slow-growth nodal segment cultures

<div><p>Abstract: The objective of this work was to evaluate the effects of temperature and osmotic agents on the in vitro conservation of Cape gooseberry (Physalis peruviana). Temperatures at 18 and 25°C, as well as the osmotic agents sucrose, mannitol, and sorbitol were tested. A short-term in vitro conservation of Cape gooseberry can be achieved at 18°C, using 30 g L-1 sucrose.</p></div>
