Cucumber family provides many favorite vegetables

By Dan Gill

The cucumber family, properly known as the Cucurbitaceae, provides a wide variety of vegetables popular for the spring, summer and fall home vegetable garden. Members of the cucumber family, known as cucurbits, can be planted now. They include summer squash, zucchini, winter squash, mirliton, pumpkin, gourd, cucuzzi, watermelon, cantaloupe, cushaw, luffa and, of course, cucumber.

All of these vegetables produce vines that run along the ground or climb. Summer squash and zucchini vines are rather short and thick, and so are more bush-like than other commonly grown members of the family. Some dwarf or “bush” types of cucumbers and other cucurbits also may be available.
