Cucurbitacin S is a biochemical compound from the family of Cucurbitacins. Cucurbitacins are known for their anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and anti-oxidant efects. In the wild, watermelons, cucumbers, and muskmelons produce bitter Cucurbitacins to defend against preditors. Humans have bred these fruits to eliminate these compounds thereby yielding fruits that are more appealing to our palate.
