Monoecious cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) parents with high, medium, and low percentage of nodes with distillate flowers had a stronger effect on the percentage of gynoecious plants in F1 and F2 progenies than did degree of gynoecious expression in incompletely gynoecious parents. Highest percentages of gynoecious plants were obtained by using both gynoecious and monoecious parents with the highest level of distillate flowering tendency. According to our data, monoecious parents with a low percentage of distillate flowering nodes should be avoided when gynoeciousness is transferred to monoecious cultivars. Self-pollination of gynoecious F2 plants, requiring induction of staminate flowers by chemical treatment, was more effective in obtaining a high percentage of gynoecious plants in F3 progenies than selfing predominately gynoecious plants, or sibmating predominately gynoecious plants.
