Cucurbits include cucumbers, gourds, muskmelons, pumpkins, squashes and watermelons.  As such, they represent one of the largest and most important groups of horticultural food plants, and are grown throughout the world. 

In common with other books in this series, the aim of this book is to present the scientific principles that relate to the biology and production of these crops, in a way that is accessible to a non-specialist audience.  This book covers production in both greenhouses and in the open field, and in developing as well as industrialized countries.
