Abdel-Basset & Fayza (2004) studied karyotype characteristics, such as chromosome size and variable morphology, including metacentric, submetacentric, and acrocentric chromosomes, and reported chromosome length ranging from 1.
Generally only one form of B chromosome is found, although variants can come in fairly frequently resulting in metacentric chromosomes, subtelocentric chromosomes, and minichromosomes (Jones and Houben, 2003).

A high frequency of metacentric chromosomes was observed in the complements of the 12 accessions, which is indicated by the average values of the centromere indices (CI) and ratios obtained between the arms of the chromosomes (r) (Table 1).
