Studies on heterosis in muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.)



Studies on heterosis in muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.)



Vegetable Science 24(2): 103-106



Six parental lines and 15 F1 hybrids of musk melon obtained from half diallel were studied during the spring-summer season of 1995/96 - 1996/97 in New Delhi, India, to investigate the extent of heterosis for yield and its contributing characters. Pusa Madhuras (P2), Ravi (P6) and Hara Madhu (P4) were observed to be three top performing parents for total yield per plant.
