Hybridization between a cultivated and a wild South African Cucumis melo L

Hybridization between a cultivated and a wild South African Cucumis melo L

Agroplantae 12(1): 9-11

All the crosses made between wild C. melo and the cultivars Dixie Jumbo, Imperial 45, Saticoy and Haogen were successful when the wild C. melo was used as the female parent. However, reciprocal crosses were unsuccessful. The F1 progeny showed that skin netting is dominant over smooth, and muskmelon flavour dominant over the sour or cucumber flavour of the wild C. melo. Coloured flesh was also dominant over creamy, white flesh. Fruit size was intermediate between that of the two parents.
