During 1984 and 1985, a collection of vegetable crop species seeds was carried out in Spain. Watermelon was enclosed in this project which was partialy supported by I.B.P.G.R./F.A.O. In addition to many other crops, 67 accessions of watermelon were collected. Samples of all of them have been sent to the National Seed Storage Laboratory, U.S.D.A., Fort Collins (U.S.A.).

Samples were collected from the following areas: Valencia (V), Andalucía (AN), Castilla-La Mancha (CM), Extremadura (E), Cataluña (C), and Aragón (A). Table 1 shows the items collected.
