    Does anyone know of a test to determine the sex of a plant?  I'm speaking of plants like Persimmon, Kiwi, Bitter Sweet, etc. that have male plants and female plants.  Among mammals, for example, the cells of females contain Barr bodies and males do not; a simple test for anyone passessing a microscope.  Is there a similar test to tell male plants from female plants?
