Completely updated with new content and full-colour figures throughout, this new edition provides succinct and authoritative knowledge relating to the production of cucurbits, including cucumbers, gourds, muskmelons, pumpkins, squashes and watermelons, and reflects on significant recent advances in the areas of production, breeding and evolution.
"Provides all of the information that most readers would ever need in a concise manner [...] I am pleased to have a copy of Cucurbits in my personal library. Others – growers, students, extension faculty, teachers, researchers, fanciers – with an interest in the vine crops will find this book useful and enjoyable to read and to have as a ready reference."
"Understandably, this volume is rich in information about the cultivated species [...] the book will be a valued addition to anyone's cucurbit and commercial horticultural library."
