It is interesting to compare these considerations with Webber's report of 1912 on pepper hybrids.
"In no case which has come under the writer's observation has a more striking instance appeared of the apparent origination of a new character by hybridization than is found in the giant and dwarf types of this series, and yet by an understanding of the recombination of the branching or body characters of the two parents we apparently arrive at a reasonable and easily comprehended explanation of the origin of the apparently new characters through the recombination of the hereditary units or genes of the parental types."

A simpler case was described by Keeble & Pellew: Inheritance of stature in Pisum sativum (1910)
