Cultivar and Germplasm Releases (all crops)

Dr. Todd C. Wehner

Many cultigens (cultivars and germplasm releases) have been made available to agriculture from the program.

Crops that we are working on include: pickling and slicing cucumber (starting 1979), luffa sponge gourd (starting 1993), mini and picnic watermelon (starting 1996), specialty melon, including Sprite type and pickling melon (starting 2002), and high rebaudioside stevia (starting 2014).
