  • Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus var

Watermelon facts

  • lanatus, family Cucurbitaceae) is a vine-like (scrambler and trailer) flowering plant originally from southern Africa
  • It is a large, sprawling annual plant with coarse, hairy pinnately-lobed leaves and white to yellow flowers
  • It is grown for its large edible fruit, also known as a watermelon, which is a special kind of berry with a hard rind and no internal division, botanically called a pepo
  • The fruit has a smooth hard rind—usually green with dark green stripes or yellow spots—and a sweet, juicy interior flesh—usually deep red to pink, but sometimes orange, yellow, or white—with many seeds, which can be soft and white or hard and black
  • Considerable breeding effort has been put into disease-resistant varieties and into developing a "seedless" strain with only digestable white seeds
  • Many cultivars are available, producing mature fruit within 100 days of planting the crop
  • The fruit can be eaten raw, pickled or the rind cooked
