Abstract: ‘Wanzhen 6’,a new pumpkin cultivar used for melon rootstock,developed by crossing the high generation inbred lines NG-98-25 as female parent and high generation inbred lines NG-12-5 as male parent. Root system and plant growth were strong. The grafting affinity with melon is strong. The fruit setting rate of grafted seedling is high,and the single melon fruit weight of grafted seedling is higher than that of self-rooted seedling. The yield has increased significantly,and there is little effect on fruit quality. It is resistant to Fusarium wilt and presenility. It has strong tolerance to high temperature and humidity. It is suitable for melon grafting cultivation in early spring,summer and autumn.
