Wild and cultivated cucurbits in nigeria



Wild and cultivated cucurbits in nigeria



Economic Botany 38(3): 350-357



The family Cucurbitaceae is represented in Nigeria by 21 genera, many of which are of considerable economic importance. Certain genera, such as Telfairia, Cucurbita and Citrullus, are commonly cultivated in southern Nigeria, since their fruits and/or leaves constitute important items in the local diet. Other genera are significant as oil plants, medicinal plants, sources of tanning materials, sponges and household utensils.
