Cucurbits....interesting word....a group of vegetable crops sometimes more commonly referred to as the gourd family. Vegetables include: cucumbers, melons (including watermelon), pumpkins and squash (winter and summer, edible and ornamental). These is a pretty big class and is rated as one of the highest in human consumption as well! Throw this word out at the dinner table and watch for blank stares. Better yet use on the Scrabble board and wait for the challenges!!
