The Origene Seeds watermelon breeding program is considered as one of the most advanced worldwide. Our product line is very diverse and covers almost all of the existing watermelon segments. Origene Seeds is a pioneer in the breeding of seedless watermelon and has the proprietary achievement of introducing intermediate resistance to Powdery Mildew. This program is a significant breakthrough, the source of the natural genes controlling the resistance from exotic wild watermelons. Another such example is drought-tolerant seedless watermelon varieties that need 25-30% less water. In addition, Origene Seeds offers a wide range of watermelon sizes, shapes and colors. The company diploid watermelon Lines are wide-ranging, covering market segments from all over the world. To complete the watermelon product line, the company continues to develop pollenizers. Origene pollenizers have a relatively large number of male flowers that have an extended period of flowering, in parallel to the flowering of the seedless varieties being pollinated. Rootstocks, custom-developed for watermelons, have a range of vigor levels suited to the vigor of the scions.
