In the present study three different types (Green, light green and light green banded) of water melon was collected from local market of Peshawar and were analyzed for certain physical parameters (TSS, RI, pH, EC, and acidity) proximate composition and sugars content. The data indicated that TSS (6.90), acidity (10.08) and pH (5.79) were higher in light green banded while EC (472.33) was higher in Green type. RI (1.34) was found same in all types. Proximate showed higher values of moisture (91.93%) and crude fat (43.00 x 10 -3 %) in light green banded while ash (9.60 x 10-3 %) and crude protein (1.75 %) were higher in green. The sugar content of green was highest among all others.    It could be concluded from the data that various types of water melon along with apparent difference are also different according to their composition.
