Table 4 Mean, median, mode, and range for the main roots, secondary roots and thickness and length of the main root per plant produced during rooting of shoot explants in experiment 2 in the accession of common eggplant MEL1. Three experimental sessions with three replicates and five explants per Petri dish for each medium were used
