The writer has on several occasions expressed his views on the subject, crossing of cucurbits. The views expressed have met with some opposition among professional gardeners, horticulturists and many farmers who cling tenaciously to the old notion, that pumpkins and melons will “mix.” So far as I know the results of our work at the station are in harmony with those made by other investigators in both Europe and America.
In a former bulletin of this station the results of our work for 1892 were given. In this bulletin will also be found references to some of the literature on the subject.
