I planted my bushel gourd yesterday, the plant was from my 200" bushel gourd in 2016. I hadn't planned on growing a bg this year but I happened to space out when grafting my watermelons and grafted a bushel gourd to a bushel gourd. So I will give it a try. I have seen studies done with watermelon, in which a watermelon was grafted to another watermelon and it outperformed the same variety of watermelon on it's own roots.
This is a link to a picture of the 200"" BG used for the rootstock and also the scion.
