Incompatibility in diploid and tetraploid crosses of Cucumis sativus and Cucumis metuliferus



Incompatibility in diploid and tetraploid crosses of Cucumis sativus and Cucumis metuliferus



Euphytica 128(3): 371-374



The African horned cucumber (C. metuliferus; 2x=2n=24) contains genes that can confer resistance to many important cucumber (C. sativus; 2x=2n=14) pests (e.g., root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita). Cucumber is highly susceptible to this root-knot nematode species, and a recent screening of C. sativus accessions in the U.S. National Plant Germplasm collection did not identify sources of resistance.
