Abstract: 
Pepino vegetable crops, used for its edible fruits, has been identified as a potential crop for greenhouse and garden cultivation. In this research propagation procedures of pepino were investigated. A randomized complete design experiment with three treatments and five replication and twenty samples were conducted to examine seed germination and transplant production methods. Seed germination percentage was 4%, 56%and 28% in soil, peat and Petri dish respectively. In second experiment propagation and production of transplant was examined using a randomized complete design with four treatments and five replicate and twenty samples. Results showed that direct planting of seeds in Jiffy pot pots (peat moss) was the best which had significant difference at 1% probability level with three other treatments. In the third experiment, propagation by stem in a 3 factor factorial experiment (4*6*2) base on a complete randomized design was examined. The first factor was kind of media, the second one auxin concentration and the third one kind of stem (apical or medial).
Stems in perlite and water significantly produce more root compare to sand and cocopeat.500 PPm concentration of auxin for 5 seconds and 100 ppm auxin for 1 hour treatment were better than hormone treatment for much longer time. There were significant interactions between hormone treatments and media and also between hormone treatments and type of stem at 1% level. The treatment of medial stems of shoots in water and perlite and application of 500PPm concentration of auxin for 5 seconds had the most roots. Generally Results of this research showes that Pepino is a vegetatively propagated plant.
