Cucumis sativus is a vegetable crop belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family and originates from temperate, subtropical sub-humid areas. This study was aimed to evaluate the effect of water extract of immature melon seeds in inhibition of seed germination of cucumber and celery plant. This study was conducted in the laboratory of the Department of Science, Faculty of Basic Education, Diyala University, Iraq. The seeds of these vegetables were selected and diagnosed in the herbaceous plant in the Department of Life Sciences. During the washing of immature seeds that were isolated from other melon residues. The results showed that the concentration of (0.1, 0.3, 0.7) and compared to the comparison models had the same effect in germination in seeds for cucumber. For celery plant only (0.7) gave the highest percentage of inhibition of celery seed plant and reached 20% Which was 80%. As for the length of the root only, the concentration of (0.7) gave the lowest rate for the cucumber and celery which amounted to 2.132 and 0.866 respectively, compared to the comparison treatment amounted to 5.932 and 1.399 respectively, in addition to other transactions. In addition, the concentration (0.7) gave the lowest length of the cucumber and celery time of 8.799 and 2.566 respectively, compared with the comparison treatment given to both plants 13.232 and 3.066 respectively, in addition to other treatments. As for the soft and dry weight of the cucumber plant, the concentration was given (0.7) the highest rate of soft weight at 0.2920, while the concentration (0.1, 0.3) gave 0.2057 and 0.0599 respectively, while dry weight gave the concentration (0.7).
