Experimental Design Description

He crossed a yellow and a green seed and found out that it makes yellow seeds but when you cross two of the new generation of seeds some green pop up. He tried this with long and short stem peas and different kinds of fertilizer but always got the same results in color.

Specific Data

There was always a 3:1 ratio For color size and shape even when he used long and short stem peas and different fertilizers.

Scientists reacted
