- Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) is a popular and economically important horticultural crop in terms of production and consumption. During development and ripening, watermelon fruits undergo various physiological and biochemical changes, resulting in diverse sizes, colors, shapes, sweetness, textures, and aromas.
- Watermelon is gaining popularity as a model plant for studying non-climacteric fruits. Studies have focused on the unique metabolic and regulatory networks of watermelon fruit to improve the crucial nutritional attributes of this fruit.
- Cultivated watermelon is an important agriculture crop world-wide. The fruit of watermelon undergoes distinct stages of development with dramatic changes in its size, color, sweetness, texture and aroma.  .
