The Cucurbitaceae, also called cucurbits and the gourd family, are a plant family consisting of around a hundred genera, the most important of which are:

  • Cucurbita – squash, pumpkin, zucchini, some gourds
  • Lagenaria – mostly inedible gourds
  • Citrullus – watermelon (C. lanatus, C. colocynthis) and others
  • Cucumis – cucumber (C. sativus), various melons
  • Luffa – the common name is also luffa, sometimes spelled loofah (when fully ripened, two species of this fibrous fruit are the source of the loofah scrubbing sponge)

The plants in this family are grown around the tropics and in temperate areas, where those with edible fruits were among the earliest cultivated plants.  The Cucurbitaceae family ranks among the highest of plant families for number and percentage of species used as human food
