Melon is the name given to various members of the Curcurbitacea family with flesh fruit.
Melon can refer to both the plant and the fruit, which is a false berry, meaning that it is an accessory fruit found in certain plant species with an inferior ovary distinguishing it from a true berry.
Many different cultivators of melons have been produced, in particular muskmelons with cantaloupe and honeydew being two of them. The plant grows as a vine and although melon is a fruit, some varieties are considered as culinary vegetables.
The melon plant grows as a vine usually along the ground in large-scale field production, but can be grown climbing over structures in protected plastic tunnels.
