Reciprocal crosses between Cucumis africanus L.f. and C. metuliferus Naud. III. Effects of pollination aids, physiological condition and genetic constitution of the maternal parent on crossability



Reciprocal crosses between Cucumis africanus L.f. and C. metuliferus Naud. III. Effects of pollination aids, physiological condition and genetic constitution of the maternal parent on crossability



Report, Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative (4): 50-53



C. metuliferus X C. africanus yielded more fruits than the reciprocal cross both with and without treatment with lanolin or aminoethoxyvinylglycine (AVG) but not after treatment with mentor pollen. In both crosses fruit set was higher in the control than after the lanolin or AVG treatments.
