Another Honorable Mention
from the article...
"although not nearly as important as the grass family, Poaceae, legume family, Fabaceae, or Nightshade family, Solanaceae."
The family Rosaceae could be included in the list of such important food providing families. The Rosaceae are probably more important than the Cucubits
Common names please
Please add common names (in parentheses) for well-known plants like cucumber, canteloupe, etc., in the family tree.
Possibly should be merged, or contain a brief set of links to other types of commonly known Pepos such as pumkpins, and squashes.
Additionally, looking up one type of fruit should include a link or to the Fruit general page, which lists each type of fruit.
I add the ref Ghebretinsae et al. because I consider an important source based on both nuclear and chloroplast genome, but I disagree partially with their conclusions that the genera Myrmecosycios, Oreosyce and Cucumella should be regarded synonyms of Cucumis, since that there was weak bootstrap support and polytomy (anagenesis) for this.
