Cross-pollination

PineywoodsTx(z8bSETx)February 2, 2005

Inasmuch as Angled Luffa is a cucurbit, if I plant another cucurbit, say, Armenian Yard-Long Cucumbers, too close, are these two going to cross-pollinate on me? I am thinking they will indeed, but would like a few more opinions, please. Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

the armenian cuke is c. melo and the luffa is c. acutangula same family diferent genus. so you would be ok. neither of these will cross with a regular cuke so you could have one of those too.
the armenian will cross with cantalope and honey dew.
hope this helps.
