Overview of Melon

  • Melons should be stored on your counter top until you are ready to eat them (although if they are very ripe you can refrigerate them to stop the ripening process.)

  • Melon has a key position in the Cucurbitaceae family for its high economic value and as a model to study biologically relevant characters, so the melon genome sequence has the added value of providing breeders with an additional tool in breeding programs.
  • Melons originated in Africa[6] or in the hot valleys of Southwest Asia, especially Iran and India,[7][8] from where they gradually began to appear in Europe toward the end of the Western Roman Empire.
  • Melon consumption has remained high for a variety of reasons, including health consciousness of consumers, improved year-round availability, creative marketing and improved varieties.

    Researchers have shown that seeds and rootstocks were among the goods traded along the caravan routes of the Ancient World.[8] Several scientists support an African origin, and in modern times wild melons can still be found in several African countries in East Africa like Ethiopia, Somalia and Tanzania.[9]
    Some botanists consider melons native to the Levant and Egypt, while others place the origin in Persia,[18] India or Central Asia, thus the origin is uncertain.There is debate among scholars whether the abattiach in The Book of Numbers 11:5 refers to a melon or a watermelon.[17] Both types of melon were known in Ancient Egypt and other settled areas.
