Cultivars are differentiated mainly by leaf pigmentation, plant size, cormel
shape and number, cormel
tip shape and pigmentation, spatial arrangement of cormels
, and cormel
flesh pigmentation .
Due to small cormel
sizes, a higher proportion (about 92%) of the cormel
yield could be classified as unmarketable.
Cultivar Effects on Growth, Yield and Cormel
Production of Gladiolus (Gladiolus grandiflorus L.).
Effect of corm size and fifferent doses of phosphorus on the growth, corm and cormel
development of gladiolus.

Majority (92%) of the farmers interviewed cultivate cocoyam for both the cormel
The Gladiolus plant is propagated mainly through vegetative reproduction of cormlets and cormels
. In vitro cormel
production from nodal buds and cormel
tip has been achieved successfully .
