Yield and Morphological İnvestıgatıon of Different Tigger Melon (Cucumis Melo Dudaim) Genotypes Belongıng to Sirnak/Turkey Region

Yelderem Akhoundnejad, Nevzat Sevgin


This study was performed in 18 different tigger melon (CUCUMİS MELO DUDAİM) genotypes which were collected from the various villages of İdil/Sirnak. In the study, measurements of brix in fruit, SPAD, dry matter in fruit, total yield, seed weight, seed weight per fruit, seed length, number of seeds per fruit, fruit weight, fruit length, fruit width, fruit wall thickness, main stem diameter, main stem length, the main number of nodes in the stem, nod in the main stem were carried out. In addition, the experiment was performed with 4 replications including 10 plants per every replicate. The experiment was made according to the random design of the trial blocks. The data obtained at the end of the experiment statistical analyzes were made by evaluating with JMP8 program and the means were compared according to LSD test. In addition, cluster analysis was also performed in terms of similarity between genotypes in the experiment. As a result, when the fruit measurements are examined; total fruit yield was recorded with high amount in the tigger melon genotype, on the other hand, genotype number 13 of the tigger melon was recorded as the low. According to the obtained results, morphological and pomological measurements demonstrated difference from each other in 18 tigger melon melon plants and fruits.

Keywords: Tigger melon, Seed, CUCUMİS MELO DUDAİM, SPAD, Brix.
