  Re: apomictic?

Could you explain this a bit further?

>One is the result of sexual reproduction and will have shared genes from both parent plants,<

Apomixis is any form of asexual reproduction. When did sexual
reproduction occur for one of the embryos to have genes shared by both
parent plants? Is this carried in the genes of the apomictic plant so
that pollination is no longer necessary?
