Abstract: 

The effect of grafting and post-grafting temperature on the plant development of two watermelon cultivars at transplantation and on subsequent fruit quality was studied. Watermelon cv. Sugar Baby and Crimson Sweet were self-rooted or grafted onto rootstock RS 841 F1 (Cucurbita maxima × C. moschata) or bottlegourd [Lagenaria siceraria f. clavata] (year 1), plus L. siceraria f. pyrotheca (year 2). After grafting, plants were held at 8oC or 16 oC (minimum) until transplantation (28-29 days), at which stage growth was compared with that of the self-rooted control held under the same conditions. Plants were planted in the field and fruit quality assessed at harvest. At the time of transplantation in year 1, plants at 16oC were taller and had a higher total fresh weight than those at 8 oC. The grafted plants of both cultivars were taller and had a higher leaf area and fresh weight than the self-rooted plants, irrespective of rootstock. In year 2, the grafted plants of both cultivars had better development (height, leaf area, leaf number, fresh weight) than self-rooted plants. The plants of Crimson Sweet ×L. siceraria f.
