Abstract

Commercial varieties of musk melon, long melon and water melon seeds were analysed and found to be rich in fat and protein. Equilibrium relative humidity of musk melon, long melon and water melon kernels was 53, 62 and 36 % at initial moisture contents of 4.7, 5.3 and 3.8 % correspondingly at room temperature (20 ± 5°C). It is found that melon kernels have good storage life, if the moisture content is maintained below 6.6 % during storage.
