University of California Cooperative Extension hosted a “Mid-Season Open House” focused on grafted watermelon on June 29, 2021. The program was held in a large field of grafted watermelon including multiple rootstock-scion combinations planted at various in-row spacings. Demonstrations of and training in watermelon grafting were also provided. UC reports that approximately 20% of the 2021 California watermelon acreage contains grafted planting stock, an increase of approximately 5-6 fold over recent years.
