Do the graphed watermelons compete in the same category as traditional watermelons. Can the traditional really compete with the graphed ones? What is the best root stock to graft too.

There is no separate category for grafted melons. The GWG club used to make it a separate category but found it controversial and unenforceable. Traditional melon plants can be competitive and do not come with the stem disease problems often associated with grated plants.

Yeah grafting was a big hot button issue here. For me it wasn't really anything new as i had seen it done before with woody plants, when I worked in the commercial nursery industry.
