Question 2 Harry studies plum tree genetics. He had a pure-breeding mutant strain of plum trees that has two unusual characteristics; the mutant tree produces figs instead of plums and there are huge spikes growing out of the branches. Harry crossed the mutant with a pure-breeding wild-type plum tree. The F 1 progeny produce figs, but have no spikes. F 0 : F 1 : a) For each pair, circle the dominant phenotype. Plums Figs Spikes No spikes b) Harry performed a backcross of an F 1 individual with an F 0 individual from the mutant strain. If there are 32 progeny trees from this cross how many trees have each of the following phenotypes? Figs, spikes
