There are many varieties of peas with distinct, heritable features in the form of dichotomous phenotypes that can be easily observed and quantified. In addition, mating of plants can be closely controlled. Since each pea plant has both sperm-producing (stamens) and egg-producing (carpels) organs, they can be self-crossed to generate true-breeding plants. After creating these true-breeding plants, Mendel could test for dominant or recessive inheritance patterns by cross-pollination (fertilization between different plants).
