Abstract

campo and jacumba are inbreds from the trihybrid cantaloupe cross (L.J. (La Jolla) 36486 (also designated P3) X PMR 45)-F1 X PMR 450. A fourth generation inbred selection was twice backcrossed to PMR 450. Resistant sibs were crossed with two different commercial stocks of PMR 450 at the final cross. Inbreeding and selection were continued for eight generations in each of the two breeding lines.
