A person first crossed pure-breed pea plants having roundyellow seeds with pure-breed pea plants having wrinkledgreen seeds and found that only A-B type of seeds were produced in the F1 generation. When F1 generation pea plants having A-B type of seeds were cross-breed by selfpollination, then in addition to the original round-yellow and wrinkled-green seeds, two new varieties A-D and C-B type of seeds were also obtained.
