The primary goal of this Golden LEAF grant is to develop new specialty melons 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.
Any project more than a couple of years old may not reflect current Board priorities.
Please contact a staff member with any questions.
