Uzbekistan is said to be famous for its melons, reputedly some of the best in the world. Farmers of the Khorezm, Bukhara, Samarkand, Shakhrisabz, Tashkent and Ferghana oases were well known amongst Silk Road travelers for their agricultural skills. Over the centuries local farmers have created different varieties of melons that can vary in size, form, coloration and of course their flavour - from pineapple to vanilla.
The climate of Uzbekistan with long hot summers fit well with such a heat-loving plant. The well developed root system accommodates itself well to irrigated lands. Even the saline soils of the Khorezm and Bukhara regions do not inhibit the growth of melons. Melon cultivation requires much labour. Following the planting of seed it usually takes a three to four month period to maturity.
Central Asia is considered the homeland of melon and is thought to have been grown here for more than two thousand years. From ancient Chinese chronicles it is known that in the beginning of some seeds of the melon were brought to China from the banks of the Oxus and the Yaksart (Syr Darya and Amu Darya) along the Great Silk Road.
Melon has been known in Europe since the Roman Empire. Images of melons can be found on frescos within the Vatican. During the Middle Ages melon began to be cultivated in Arabian countries where it was treated with great respect and believed to be a, paradise fruit, brought down to the Earth by an archangel. In the 16th century, firstly the French started cultivation of this plant with the practice then spreading to other European countries including England where farmers used greenhouses to grow melons. In the 17th century Russia adopted the experience. In Moscow, during the reign of the Russian Czar Alexey Mikhailovich, greenhouses were built for the cultivation of melons.
