WE USE HAND-POLLINATION to produce organic and conventional hybrid cucumber, squash, and melon seed. We also make OP (Open Pollinated) productions in this species.
Species in the Cucurbitaceae are monecious; the female and male sexual parts are found borne on separate flowers on the same plant. These hybrids are made by pollinating the female flowers of one line with pollen derived from the male flowers of a separate line, while the male flowers of the female line are removed. If you provide us with the two parental lines, we will produce the hybrid seed.
