Abstract

A novel soybean seed and plant capable of producing the same are provided. Such soybean seed contains an endogenous linolenic acid (C18:3) content in the vegetable oil at a low level of less than 3.0% (preferably less than about 2.5%) by weight in combination with an elevated stearic acid (C18:0) content of about 20% to 32% by weight based upon the total fatty acid content. The soybean seed is capable upon germination of producing a plant that likewise forms seeds having an endogenous linolenic acid content in the vegetable oil of less than 3.0% (preferably less than about 2.5%) by weight in combination with an elevated stearic acid content of about 20% to 32% by weight based upon the total fatty acid content. The linolenic acid and stearic acid contents of the endogenously formed vegetable oil are determined by gas chromatography (as described).
