Özet

This study aimed to compare some local melon (Cucumis melo L.) genotypes selected from the Lake Van Basin (65 ER 02, 65 ER 04, and 13 TAT 05) with some commercial melon cultivars (Ananas, Makdimon F(1), and Rambo F(1)) for some yield and quality related traits observed in field and high tunnel conditions for two years. At the end of the study, it was determined that Makdimon F(1) produced the highest early and total yields (14.76 and 30.51 t ha(-1), respectively). While the locally selected melon genotype 65 ER 04 followed Makdimon F(1) for the early yield (11.43 t ha(-1)), the locally selected genotype 65 ER 02 followed Makdimon F1 for the total yield (22.49 t ha(-1)). The cultivars Rambo F(1) and Makdimon F(1) had higher soluble solid contents than the others.
