Commercially important species of cucurbits include watermelon (Citrullus lanatus), muskmelon (Cucumis melo), cucumber (Cucumis sativa), squash (Cucurbita pepoCucurbita moschata), and pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima). The causal agent is the fungal-like organism (oomycete), Pseudoperonospora cubensis (Sitterly 1992).
