Interspecific and Intergeneric Crosses in Cultivated Plants (1997)

Cucurbit Patrogenesis?
A. Belea

In 1902 Bailey was the first to produce a viable F1 generation from the Japanese 'Crookneck' (Cucurbita mixta) x 'Connecticut Field Pumpkin' (C. pepo) combination. The 88 F1 plants were phenotypically more similar to the C. pepo species, the only difference being in the state of development of the lower flowers of the plants.
