Watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris) and grape (Vitis vinifera) seeds were investigated for their nutritional quality and oil characteristics. The yields of seeds on an as is basis (edible portion) were 1.6 and 1.8% for grape and melon, respectively. The melonseed on a dry weight basis consisted of 53.6% testa and 46.4% kernel. The crude protein, fat and fiber content were 16.4, 23.1 and 47.7% for melon and 8.2, 14.0 and 38.6% for grape (dry weight basis). Both seeds were found to contain… 
Characteristics and composition of melon seed oil
TLDR
Dried melon seeds of the family Cucurbitaceae were investigated for nutritional quality and the oil seed characteristics and the fatty acids composition of the seed oil showed an unsaturated fatty acid content of 77.4% and the high content of 63.2% of PUFA.
Nutritional Composition and Oil Characteristics of Golden Melon (Cucumis melo ) Seeds
This study investigated the mineral and proximate composition of Golden/canary melon ( Cucumis melo ) seeds and the physiochemical properties of the seed oil. Proximate composition and
EVALUATION OF GRAPE (Vitis vinifera L.) SEEDS AS A NEW SOURCE OF EDIBLE PROTEIN AND OIL FOR HUMAN NUTRITION
The present investigation was aimed to utilize of grape seeds (Vitis vinefera L.) as a new and untraditional source of edible protein and oil for food purposes. Chemical composition of whole grape
Nutrient potential of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) seeds and its incorporation in product preparation
The water melon seeds were analyzed for its different properties such as the physico-chemical and functional properties and nutritional properties. The seeds were also incorporated in products to
Physico-chemical and functional properties of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) seed-oil.
TLDR
The favorable functional properties makes the seed and the oil suitable for human consumption and therefore the result of this research work would provide further information on the domestic and industrial usage of the seedand seed-oil.
Proximate analysis and phytochemical screening of watermelon (citrullus lanatus) pulp, peels and seeds
The fruit popularly known as Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) is a local recipe eaten in Nigeria and African. The research was conducted to evaluate the nutritional composition and phytoconstituents of
Investigating Some Physicochemical Properties and Fatty Acid Composition of Native Black Mulberry (Morus nigra L.) Seed Oil
The physicochemical properties of seed and seed oil obtained from the native black mulberry (Morus nigra L.) were investigated in 2008 and 2009. The results showed that the seed consisted of 27.5–33%
Characteristics of grape seed and oil from nine Turkish cultivars
Percentages of crude oil, protein, fibre and ash of grape seeds obtained from Turkish cultivars were of the ranges 5.40–10.79, 5.24–7.54, 17.6–27.1, and 1.2–2.6, respectively. The highest crude oil,

This study evaluates four Cucurbit species in Iree, Osun state, Nigeria. The species used were Cucumeropsis manni (Naudin), Cucumis sativus, Leganaria siceraria and Cucumeropsis edulis (Hook).
Chemical composition of caneberry (Rubus spp.) seeds and oils and their antioxidant potential.
TLDR
Ellagitannins and free ellagic acid were the main phenolics detected in all five caneberry species and were approximately 3-fold more abundant in the blackberries and the boysenberry than in the raspberries.
