Variety of melons on a white background.
Melons are members of the gourd family. These plants have climbing or trailing vines that produce large, tough rind fruits that are sweet and juicy. You’d think these fruits, with their tough rinds wouldn’t need much attention. Just put them in a big display and wait for them to sell.
