County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to provide a second year of funding to assist NCSU with the continued development of a new specialty melon for NC growers. Objectives include the development of inbred lines with performance at least as good as “Sprite” and testing of hybrids made by crossing complementary pairs of inbreds with the ultimate goal of releasing a replacement cultivar for the “Sprite” melon with ownership and control in NC.
