Abstract:

In our present investigation we reported the study on inheritance pattern of F2 population of melon (Cucumis melo. L) for various fruit traits and ovary characters. A chi square test was done to study the segregation pattern of 151 F2 lines of melon for various fruit and ovary traits like ovary pubescence, ovary shape, fruit shape in longitudinal section, fruit shape at peduncle end, fruit groves, sutures on fruits, fruit surface netting, firmness of flesh and fruit taste. Monogenic complete dominance was observed for ovary shape, firmness of flesh and fruit taste. Incomplete dominance was observed for fruit shape in longitudinal section. Digenic control was observed for ovary pubescence, fruit shape at peduncle end, fruit groves, sutures on fruits and fruit surface netting.
