Cucurbitaceae, the gourd family of flowering plants, belonging to the order Cucurbitales and containing 98 genera and about species of food and ornamental plants.

Members of the family are annual or perennial herbs native to temperate and tropical areas and include cucumbers, gourds, melons. Some of these plants represent some of the earliest cultivated plants in both the Old and New Worlds (Rahman, ).

Many Cucurbitaceae seeds are rich in oil and protein, and although none of these oils have been utilized on an industrial scale, many are used as cooking oil in some countries in Africa and the Middle East (AL-Khalifa, ).

Variations of bitter principle content in different parts and with age and origin of a plant have been found. An association of cucurbitacin B with D, G and H, and of cucurbitacin E with I, J and K is indicated.

The relation between bitter principle composition and taxonomic divisions is by: Members of the family are annual or perennial herbaceous plants; many are climbing or trailing vines with characteristic tendrils. The flowers are often showy and unisex and produce large fruits known as pepos. The following is a list of some of the major genera and species in Cucurbitaceae, arranged alphabetically by common name.

The Cucurbitaceae, also called cucurbits or the gourd family, are a plant family consisting of about species in around 95 genera, of which the most important to humans are.
