Melons belong to Cucurbitaceae and they are dicotyledonous, climbing and annual plants. Many people think they are native to North Africa, Central Asia and India, but it is difficult to conclude this because people in the Mideast also grow melons. The palm-shaped leaves which are split into from three to seven parts are crisscrossed, and stalks are long. Tendrils come out across the leaves. There are male, female and bisexual melon flowers, which are covered by bristly hairs. The fruits are round and their pulp is white, green or golden yellow. People usually eat melons after freezing them, or use them for ice cream or juice.
