I am looking for flowering or vegetative plants that produce pollen and large seeds and have a short growth cycle (less than 50 days). These are to be used in research, and I need to be able to collect pollen and obtain mature seeds for second and thrid generations. Thanks

Unfortunately I can't think of a plant that can meet your requirements. Some varieties of early peas and bush beans will produce large seeds in a relatively short period of time, but even they will not mature in under 50 days.
