Small Size Seedless Watermelon
Triploid watermelons producing small fruits
Tetraploid watermelon inbreds are described as well as the methods of propagating the tetraploid inbreds through seeds and tissue culture.
The described tetraploid watermelons are particularly suitable as parent for triploid hybrids watermelons. They produce small fruits with a very thin rind and have a high content of soluble solids. Importantly, the tetraploid watermelons of this present invention are capable of transmitting these desirable characteristics to their triploid progeny when crossed with diploid watermelons. This results in producing small, seedless fruits with high flesh content while maintaining high standards of fruit taste and texture.
