Powdery mildew limits cucumber production worldwide. Most resistant cucumber cultivars become susceptible to powdery mildew at low temperatures. Resistance within a wide temperature range is therefore desirable for cucumber production. We constructed a cucumber genetic linkage map based on a population of 111 recombinant inbred lines derived from a cross(More)
Downy mildew, caused by Pseudoperonospora cubensis (Berk. & Curt.) Rostov, is one of the most economically important foliar diseases in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). Cucumber line CS-PMR1, derived from self-pollination of USDA Plant Introduction 197088, has a high level of resistance to downy mildew and is considered to be promising breeding material. In(More)
Plant architecture plays an important role in the yield, product quality, and cultivation practices of many crops. Branching pattern is one of the most important components in the plant architecture of melon (Cucumis melo L.). ‘Melon Chukanbohon Nou 4 Go’ (Nou-4) has a short-lateral-branching trait derived from a weedy melon, LB-1. This trait is reported to(More)
Melon yellow spot virus (MYSV), a member of the genus Tospovirus, is a devastating thrips-transmitted virus of cucurbits. The cucumber accession 27028930 was found to be resistant to MYSV in our previous study. In the present study, we identified quantitative trait loci (QTLs) conferring resistance to two MYSV isolates, MYSV-FuCu05P and MYSV-S. An F2(More)
Fifty-one melon (Cucumis melo) accessions that originated from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh were evaluated for resistance to Cucurbit chlorotic yellows virus (CCYV), a newly emerged species in the genus Crinivirus. CCYV was inoculated using sweet potato whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) biotype Q. Accessions, JP 138332, JP 216154, JP 216155, JP 216751 and JP(More)
