History of the watermelon

It is very refreshing in the summer heat since it contains 92 percent water. This floral vine is native to southern Africa. Botanists use the term watermelon to refer to both the fruit and the plant. Although the plant is known as a pepo, the pepo fruit has a thick exterior and a fleshy core. Pepos arise from the inferior ovary. They’re also members of the Cucurbitaceae family, which includes gourds. This fruit is informally classified as a melon. It does not belong to the genus Cucumis, unlike other melons. The smooth exterior produces a dark green rind with stripes or yellow dots. They have a sweet, juicy inner flesh that varies in color -

from deep red to pink. It can appear in a variety of colors, including orange, yellow, and white. Try our watermelon slices with chamoy. Our special blend of Chamoy, Tajin, and other spices is used to cover them.

Wild melons tasted dull and unpleasant, even though they held a lot of water. This hint shows that the desert inhabitants grew the first melon. Additional evidence for the its worth can be discovered in the seeds and paintings found in Pharaoh’s tombs. 

They may reach huge sizes when grown under the right conditions. Every year, competitions around the world reward awards for the largest one. The heaviest watermelon, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, weighs 262 pounds.

We celebrate National Watermelon Day because the delicious, refreshing fruit deserves its day. The cultivation extends back to 2000 B.C., with the first watermelon harvest recorded in Egypt around 5,000 years ago. 

Mutations over a thousand years of cultivation have resulted in the sweet fruit we enjoy today. The seeds were sold to traders going through the Kalahari Desert via Africa’s trading routes. Thus, its cultivation spread throughout Africa in this way.

The watermelon’s progenitor originated in Africa, and it later spread to Mediterranean regions and other parts of Europe. Its cultivation became popular in China and the rest of Asia by the end of the ninth century.

In 1615, the word ‘watermelon’ was first recorded in the English dictionary. Watermelon comes in about 300 different types in the United States, ranging from red to white and in all shapes and sizes.
