EtymologyEdit

Attested since about late 4th century CE, since Palladius and author(s) of Historia Augusta. Seems to be a colloquial shortening of mēlopepō, from Ancient Greek μηλοπέπων (mēlopépōn, melon), probably with influence from μῆλον (mêlon, apple).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

mēlō m (genitive mēlōnis); third declension

  1. (Late Latin) Some cucurbit, likely an apple-shaped melon.
    • c. 500 CE, Palladius, Opus agriculturae 4.9.5:
      Nunc melones serendi rarius: distent inter se semina pedibus duobus, locis subactis, vel pastinatis, maxime arenis.
      Now melons are to be sown: let the seeds be two feet distant, in places well wrought and pastinated, mostly in sand.
