Mendel’s experiment Mendel investigated the inheritance of seed  shape (round v wrinkled) and seed colour (green  v yellow) at the same time. From his monohybrid crosses he knew that  round seeds were dominant to wrinkled seeds  and yellow seeds were dominant to green seeds. He chose to cross plants that were pure breeding  for both dominant features (round and yellow  seeds) with plants that were pure breeding for  both recessive features (wrinkled and green  seeds)
