Possibility of interspecific hybridization between Cucumis metuliferus N. and Cucumis melo L. by reciprocal grafting



Possibility of interspecific hybridization between Cucumis metuliferus N. and Cucumis melo L. by reciprocal grafting



Cucurbitaceae 88 Proceedings of the Eucarpia meeting on cucurbit genetics and breeding, Avignon Montfavet, France, May 31 June 2, 1988: 181-186



Grafting young seedlings of C. metuliferus on C. melo rootstocks and vice versa gave a success rate of over 95%. Grafted plants were reciprocally crossed with one another and with non-grafted plants. Most crosses with C. metuliferus as parent resulted in fruit abortion, while those with C. melo as gave no ovary development or fruit set.
