Graft combinations were effected with 2x, 3x and 4x water melon scions on Lagenaria vulgaris stocks, 2x water melon scions on 3x or 4 x water melon stocks, and 3x water melon scions on 2x water melon stocks. Improved fruit yields resulted from using L. vulgaris as a stock. A mixed pollination experiment is also reported using a 4x water melon as the mother plant and mixed 2x and 4x pollen.
