Vernalization Stimulates Flowering In Biology Question

Vernalization stimulates flowering in


(a) zamikand
(b) turmeric
(c) carrot
(d) ginger

Correct Answer:



Carrot is a biennial plant which flowers in the second season. Vernalization is the subjection of seeds or seedlings to low temperature in order to hasten plant development and flowering. Vernalization is commonly used for crop plants such as winter rye and is possible because the seeds and buds of many plants require cold in order to break dormancy. Winter cereals are therefore sown in the autumn for flowering the following year. However, if germinating seeds are artificially vernalized they can be sown in the spring for flowering the same year. Biennial plants, such as carrot (Daucus carota), will remain in their non-flowering rosette form until subjected to cold treatment.
