Data from: A catalog of natural products occurring in watermelon - Citrullus lanatus

posted on 2024-02-16, 18:40 authored by Larry Parnell

In support of nutrition research, concentrations of compounds from different parts of the watermelon plant are provided. The parts of the plant for which data are tabulated include (red) flesh, heart tissue, juice, seed, rind, peel, yellow flesh, seedling, leaf, root, other parts of the plant, and detected but plant part undeclared. The collected data include the low value in the range, the high value in the range, deviation from those values, and units (assumed to be fresh or wet weight unless noted). This table also provides for all compounds the citations to the literature and database sources. The “AFC” identifier represents the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Food Compound; PubChem refers to the identifier from this resource of chemical compounds.
