The segregation of the leaf shape in F2 generation into three classes: okra leaf, normal and the intermediate leaf shape of sub-okra and fitting into the theoretical 1:2:1 monohybrid ratio of incomplete dominance in the present studies lies in close proximity to the findings of Rahman and Khan (1998) and Nawab et al.
