It is of interest to refine the taxonomic status of C. melo ssp. agrestis using its plastome data. The chloroplast size and GC% was found to be 1,56,016 bp and 36.92% respectively in Cucumis melo subsp. agrestis. The plastome of C. melo subsp. agrestis comprises of two inverted repeat (IR) regions of 25,797 bp each. It consisted of 133 genes with 88 protein-coding genes, 8 rRNA genes and 37 tRNA genes. Analysis of the C. melo ssp. agrestis plastome data will help breeders to improve the yield the crop.
