J. hort. Ass. Japan. 28: 39-44. bibl. 13



It was confirmed that monoeciousness in melons differed from andromonoeciousness by a single dominant allele. The germination on an artificial medium of pollen from a hermaphrodite flower reached 75.8%, and from a staminate flower reached 66.2%, after 1 hour of culture. No significant differences in pollen tube elongation were observed. Pollination by pollen from the same flower or from a neighbouring staminate flower had no effect on yield or market value of mature fruits.
