Variability in Namibian landraces of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus)


Variability in Namibian landraces of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus)



Euphytica 132(3): 251-258



ISSN/ISBN: 0014-2336

DOI: 10.1023/a:1025053331528

An on-station experiment was carried out in northern Namibia to compare local landraces of watermelon to modern varieties. Three groups of local watermelon are distinguished by farmers in Namibia: watermelons for fresh consumption, cooking melons used for porridge, and seed melons for oil pressing. The present study was carried out to estimate agronomic potential of the local landraces and verify whether agronomic characteristics would justify the local groupings.
