This interesting material has notes that make it an obvious choice for cucumber and melon flavors. Beyond that, however, it will also work in other fruits, like pear, guava, peach, and some mint flavors, especially spearmint. It might even be considered at very low levels for use in cheese flavors, especially those from goat and sheep′s milk.
