Abstract

Attempts have been made to germinate the pollen of Cucurbita pepo and Cucurbita moschata on artificial media. Various combinations of sugars and agar dissolved in distilled water were first used. It was found that two grams of agar and 14 grams of sucrose in 100 cc. of solution gave the best results, 10 per cent germination being obtained.
