Abstract

Main conclusion Unauthorized genetically engineered
orange petunias were found on the market.
Genetic engineering of petunia was shown to lead to novel
flower color some 20 years ago. Here we show that petunia
lines with orange flowers, generated for scientific purposes,
apparently found their way to petunia breeding programmes,
intentionally or unintentionally. Today they are
widely available, but have not been registered for
commerce.
