— Written By Mary Lorscheider

NC State Extension Horticultural Science Vegetable specialist, Jonathan Schultheis, and Research Associate Keith Starke conduct annual variety trials on Melon, Pumpkin, Squash, Watermelon, and other cucurbits. An objective of our cucurbit evaluations is to identify adapted cultivars that NC growers can grow profitably. Visit the Cucurbit Variety Trials page to view all of the cucurbit reports.

The 2018 Pumpkin Trials, an annual collaboration between NC State Vegetable Extension and University of Tennessee Department of Plant Science are now available. Download a PDF copy of this Variety Trial booklet. Look for 2018 Watermelon Cultivar Evaluation results in February.
