Red pepper "Hirosaki zairai" is a local variety grown around Hirosaki city in Aomori Prefecture. It has been promoted as one of the valuable local brands. In this study, we tried to create additional values on this variety via mutation breeding using ion beam. As a result, some extremely small fruits and atypical double fruits (a small fruit was formed in a fruit) were observed at 40-Gy irradiated samples. This result suggested that ion-beam irradiation affected fruit formation in red peppers.
