AK_Qaunatitative: Initial Shoot Formation
These are a few purple onions that were sprouting in my vegetable bowl. The quantitative trait here is the number of initial shoots formed. Initial shoot formation for these onions (and the other two I found sprouting) was between three shoots and eight shoots. With only five specimens it is difficult to determine whether this trait is actually quantitative or qualitative. The shoots came up in clusters of three or four, with onions have larger number of shoots showing them in such clusters of three or four.
