We studied aroma inheritance in four rice cultivars-Della (USA), Shiroikichi (Japan), Hokkaido 270 (Japan), and HB1 (China). These were crossed with nonaromatic cultivars (Koshihikari, Nipponbare) and with each other. Four crosses each for aromatic/nonaromatic and aromatic/aromatic were obtained in 1998.

P1, P2, and F1 plants from all crosses were grown in pots in the greenhouse during the 1998-99 winter season; P1, P2, and F2 plants were cultivated in the field in 1999.
