How did the watermelon get its name?

Watermelon

The watermelon gets its name because the fruit has an abundance of watery juice.

On a warm summer day is there anything that tastes as good as an ice-cold, juicy watermelon.

The popular melon gets its name because it has an abundance of water juice.  In fact, the watermelon is almost all water—some 93 percent water.

There are many kinds of watermelons but the most popular are the varieties having red flesh that is firm, crisp and sweet, with a s few seeds as possible.

To grow well, watermelons need sandy, moist soil and plenty of sunshine.

The watermelon plant is a long, traling vine with flat, lobed leaves.  The vines may branch out 12 or more feet in all directions.

Some watermelons may weigh more than 50 pounds, but most of them are smaller.

For best flavor, watermelons should not be picked till fully ripe.

Most kinds are ripe when the rind (outer shell) gets very hard and the melon sounds hollow when thumped.
