Self-fertilization of Cucumis metuliferus Naud. and its cross-compatibility with C. melo L



Self-fertilization of Cucumis metuliferus Naud. and its cross-compatibility with C. melo L



Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science 102(3): 336-339



Self- and cross-compatibility relationships between the African horned cucumber C. metuliferus and C. melo Gulfstream were studied. In selfed flowers of C. metuliferus the pollen tubes reached the ovules within 24 h. Fertilization occurred in 91% of the ovules between 24 and 48 h. Gulfstream pollen on C. metuliferus germinated well but pollen tubes grew more slowly and most stopped at the level of the uppermost ovules.
