Causal Agents: (physiological ‑ several)

Bottle neck (Image 1) or otherwise misshapen fruit can be caused by pollination problems or fluctuations in watering. Cultivars can differ in susceptibility.

Increasing the bee population by bringing in bee hives and placing them near the melon field may alleviate the problem.
