Mendel most likely chose to use the pea plant because they are easy to cultivate, small in size and reproduce quickly with a large amount of offspring.
Pea plants are also able to reproduce in two ways: self-fertilize and cross-fertilize.
This ensured that the plants to be studied were of a true or pure breed, meaning their offspring would only produce one form of each trait.
