Abstract

In the Çukurova University Department of Horticulture more than 350 melon accessions were collected from different ecological parts of Turkey which is located on the secondary genetic diversification center of this crop, and their characterization studies are near completion. Furthermore, evaluation studies of these materials have started. In the present study 67 melon accessions, sampled from this germplasm, were tested for resistance to zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV), Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) and watermelon mosaic virus (WMV). After resistance tests made by mechanical inoculation, four accessions (‘CU 100’, ‘CU 287’, ‘CU 305’ and ‘CU 328’) were found resistant to ZYMV and three accessions (‘CU 305’, ‘C 264’, and ‘C 276’) to WMV. No resistant genotype was found to CMV.
