Cucumis melo subsp.
tuberosa is an andromonoecious
species and possesses hermaphrodites and male flowers in the same inflorescence.
The plants are polygamodioecious with about 5% of the population producing exclusively staminate (male) flowers and 4050% producing mainly male flowers and a few bisexual flowers (andromonoecious
) while the remaining 40-50% produces only the pistillate (female) flowers.
as well as hermaphrodite species were considered.
The remaining sexual systems are found exclusively among the dicots: Gynomonoecious species include 7% of the flora and are in Abrotanella, Cuminia, Chenopodium, Erigeron, and Lactoris; the one gynodioecious species is in Rhaphithamnus; polygamous taxa are scarce and included in Empetrum and Parietaria, as are andromonoecious
taxa included in Cyperaceae and Asteraceae.
Hermaphroditic plants have two perfect spikelets at each rachis node, whereas only the sessile spikelet is perfect in andromonoecious
