D

Lemon and Tamarind

The process of growing plants using artificial method is called artificial vegetative reproduction. In the method of vegetative reproduction by root cutting, a piece of root is cut from a parent plant, placed in a growing medium, and then left to grow its own system of roots and stems. This process results in the creation of a new plant that is often considered a ‘ clone’ of the parent plant, with the same genetic qualities. With vegetative reproduction plants also bypass juvenile or immature sidling phase and therefore reach the mature phase sooner. This can save a lot of time and money for commercial plant production. Fruit bearing plants like lemon and tamarind are artificially reproduced by root cutting to harvest fruits faster.
Thus, the correct answer is option D.
