A picture of my bushel gourd and melon from the Durham fair weigh off. I made a mistake earlier when disclosing the seed that the melon was grown off, it was from my D1 2019 big fat melon that I grew last year. It was grown on a Tetsukabuto rootstock.
The bushel gourd pictured was grown off my 263.5 and was grafted onto a 'Tetsukabuto' rootstock. Why would anyone bother to do that? I had some leftover BG and Tetsu seedlings after finishing my melon grafts. Why not? I can tell you this, BG's don't start out slow when they are on a squash rootstock. They grow fast out of the gate.
