Pepones et melones.  Piper, puleium, mel vel passum, liquamen, acetum: 
interdum et silfi accedit.

IIRC, pepones are the long melons while melones are the round melons (small 
round melons being pepomelones).

Pepper, pennyroyal, honey or passum, liquamen and vinegar.  Sometimes 
asafetida is added.
