Abstract

Arya, a novel variety of melon from India is found immune to ToLCNDV under field conditions. It can serve as a potential source of resistance for ToLCNDV that can be imparted to other melons. Unlike other melons, Arya melons can be successfully grown both during spring summer and rainy (kharif) season. Arya IC629818-A bear long and good number of fruits per plant (8-10), thus can serve as a substitute to long melon during kharif season. Moreover, IC629823 and IC629818B had long cream coloured fruit which make them unique and attractive to the consumers.
