Field studies were conducted on 20 local watermelon populations with Crimson Sweet as a check, to discuss the possibility of integrating them with existing breeding programmes. Local populations were low in yield. However, Local Population 3 and TR 43120 exceeded Crimson Sweet (4984 kg/da) in total yield by 6166 and 5153 kg/da, respectively. All populations which received high points in the panel test had total soluble solid values above 10%.
