Cucurbits comprise an important tropical group of vegetable crops viz., cucumber, melons, squashes, pumpkins, Asiatic gourds, etc., grown extensively in different tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. They are a unique group of crop plants having special botanical features, their production technologies recording the highest productivity under sophisticated protected cultivation systems and their utilization includes some significant nutritional and nutraceutical constituents, used in native and traditional systems of Indian medicine and also of other Asiatic and African countries, for human welfare. This volume portrays an exhaustive review and represents a comprehensive treatise on the different scientific principles, practical applications and farmers' practices. It deals extensively with several biological aspects, basic and applied to develop production technologies of these crops. The wealth of information compiled will attract a wide and diverse range of targeted readership of under-graduate and post-graduate students and teaching faculties, Research Fellows of State Agricultural Universities and ICAR Institutes, besides professionals like Nutritionists, Dieticians, Botanist, Conservators of Genetic Resources, Horticultural Extension Officers in transfer of Technology services, enlightened farmers, new emerging Supply-Chain Managers of Retail Trade, etc.
