Cross-pollination

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

RE: Cross-pollination

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.
