  • While watermelon might not rank very high on your personal list of foods with great diversity, this fruit is far more diverse than many people suspect. (whfoods.com)
  • However, you'll typically want to make sure that a watermelon is sufficiently ripe before purchasing it in order to receive great texture and flavor from this fruit. (whfoods.com)
  • Additionally, other wild species have bitter fruit containing cucurbitacin. (wikipedia.org)
  • The generic name Citrullus is the diminutive of Citrus , perhaps referring to the spherical fruit. (worldwidefruits.com)

  • Cucurbitales
  • Members of the Cucurbitales form an important component of low to montane tropical forest with greater representation in terms of the number of species. (wikipedia.org)
  • The order Cucurbitales in the eurosid I clade comprises almost 2600 species in 109 or 110 genera in eight families, tropical and temperate, of very different sizes, morphology, and ecology. (wikipedia.org)
  • The patterns of speciation in the Cucurbitales are diversified in a high number of species. (wikipedia.org)
  • Before modern DNA-molecular classifications, some Cucurbitales species were assigned to orders as diverse as Ranunculales, Malpighiales, Violales, and Rafflesiales. (wikipedia.org)
  • stems
  • The watermelon is an annual plant with long, weak, trailing or climbing stems which are five-angled and up to 3 m (10 ft) long. (worldwidefruits.com)
  • It has evolved independently in several plant families, using many different climbing methods such as: twining their stems around a support (e.g., morning glories, Ipomoea species). (wikipedia.org)
  • Family
  • In addition, disease resistance ( R ) gene family was finely characterized and several specie-specific R -genes expansion was detected in C. pepo . (frontiersin.org)
  • Over half of the known members of this order belong to the greatly diverse begonia family Begoniaceae, with around 1500 species in two genera. (wikipedia.org)

  • Although this error only occurred in 1930 (Bailey, Gentes Herbarum 2: 180-186), it has been perpetuated in hundreds of papers on the watermelon. (wikipedia.org)
  • closely related
  • Comparative mapping of 5S and 45S rDNA by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) technique is an excellent tool to determine cytogenetic relationships among closely related species. (nih.gov)
  • ferns
  • Many eudicot species and cultivars are resistant to the disease and all monocots, gymnosperms and ferns are immune. (wikipedia.org)
  • crops
  • Vegetable crops include a large number of species, characterized by multiple geographical origins, large genetic variability and diverse reproductive features. (frontiersin.org)
  • wild
  • Still and all, for many thousands of years, hundreds of wild and (in time) cultivated native species complemented each other to comprise the core of the continental food supply. (nap.edu)
  • consumption
  • We were fascinated to see a recent study on consumption of watermelon puree by a group of endurance athletes (trained cyclists) wanting to reduce their risk of post-exercise oxidative stress and inflammation. (whfoods.com)
  • The researchers determined that the antioxidant capacity in the riders' bloodstreams was significantly increased post-exercise through consumption of the watermelon puree. (whfoods.com)
  • group
  • They also specifically noted the solid job done by watermelon puree in providing cyclists with needed energy, as witnessed by the equally strong performance of cyclists in the watermelon group. (whfoods.com)
  • Several
  • Several cultivated species included Bryonia dioica reported as waifs in California (Howell 1958 Wasmann J Biol 16:1--157), but none recently. (berkeley.edu)
