I wouldn't limit yourself to one university. But seriously, do it. Keep me updated.

OK, this is awesome! I want to know two things:


Will the seeds germinate to keep the hybridization?

Assuming it's a hybrid the seeds from the fruit will not produce the same plant next year. If it's your first year growing these cucumbers and honeydew melons then the fruit they produce should have been cucumbers and honeydew melons. Almost everything I've read says cucumbers will not cross with squash, pumpkin, muskmelons, or watermelons. There are also places that say they will because they're all in the same family. (like potato and eggplant)
Space Cadet: Your cucumbers may be oddly shaped because of poor pollination; Then again I haven't grown green gourds so I'm not going to tell you what you're growing
