Watermelon > Wiki


Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum & Nakai, family Cucurbitaceae) can be both the fruit and the plant of a vine-like (scrambler and trailer) herb originally from southern Africa and one of the most common types of melon. This flowering plant produces a special type of fruit known by botanists as a pepo, a berry, which has a thick rind (exocarp) and fleshy center (mesocarp and endocarp); pepos are derived from an inferior ovary and are characteristic of the Cucurbitaceae. The watermelon fruit, loosely considered a type of melon (although not in the genusCucumis), has a smooth exterior rind (green, yellow, and sometimes white) and a juicy, sweet interior flesh (usually pink, but sometimes orange, yellow, red, and sometimes green if not ripe).

I love watermelon. It's not only a thirst quencher, it can even be eaten as a meal! Red is beautiful!      Try not to buy watermelon that's been cut up into pieces or half as germs germinate easily in this fruit if the temperature is hot. Hence, it's best to finish up this fruit as soon as it's cut!

It's no good for traveling and spoils very fast, but it's excellently refreshing.
