Combining ability and heterosis effect in winter squash (Cucurbita maxima Duch.)



Combining ability and heterosis effect in winter squash (Cucurbita maxima Duch.)



Genetica Polonica 34(3): 259-272



Information on combining ability and heterosis is derived from data on 5 yield components in 7 bush/semibush inbreds and 2 vine type inbreds, and their F1 hybrids grown over 2 years. High GCA values were obtained for all yield components while significant SCA was noted for fruit yield. Semibush line 144 (Ispanskaya x Emerald Squash) was the best combiner for dry matter content.
