Stocks and Germplasm Desired or For Exchange

Stocks Desired

J.M. Crall

  • Watermelon lines with gummy stem blight resistance for crossing with the most advanced lines in our progeny selection program.

J.D. McCreight

  • Chlorophyll deficient stocks and stocks having any one or more of the following genes of Cucumis melo: g, gynomonoecious; gp, green petals; h, halo cotyledons; and l, lobed leaves.

A.P.M. den Nijs

  • In research for resistance to several cucumber diseases (notably Cucumber Green Mottle Mosaic Virus, black root rot caused by Phomopsis sclerotoides, and rootknot nematodes) the Institute for Horticultural Plant Breeding has started a program of inters0ecific hybridization in Cucumis. Despite vigorous acquisition efforts the available Asiatic wild and feral material remains scanty. These accessions deserve much evaluation because less severe hybridization problems are to be expected. Therefore, we request any wild or feral cucumber material of Asiatic origin, including the Turkey-Lebanon area. Screening data, identification, somatic chromosome number and crossing behavior will be supplied.

M. Pitrat

Stocks for Exchange

W.P. Bemis

  • Cucurbita foetidissima, Buffalo gourd, Arizona Hybrid #1, (158 x 142). This hybrid seed has beebn produced utilizing the gynoecious character segregating in experimental lines of C. foetidissima. It represents a relatively homogeneous seed source when compared to composites of wild collections.

J. M. Crall

  • Watermelon lines with large fruit size, combined resistance to wilt and anthracnose, intense red flesh color, and high soluble solids juice; also we could furnish small samples of seed of our mosaic-tolerant (?) lines.
