A model for highly efficient method for plant regeneration from somatic embryos of chinaberry tree (Melia azedarach L.) was obtained. Mature seeds were cultured on Murashige and Skoog's medium supplemented with NAA/BA to induce embryogenic tissues. Embryo proliferation occurred with high level citokinin concentration (10 mg/L BAP) and germination occurred on free hormone medium or in BAP/AG3 medium. Plants were regenerated from both, direct embryo formation and through an intermediary callus phase. Results showed 100% embryo conversion to plant. Regenerated plants were normal phenotypically and continued to grow after transfer to a greenhouse environment with 100% of surviving with high rate of growth.
