Watermelon is My Favorite Fruit

I Love Watermelon!

By: Dani for Science Class

I love watermelon the best, out of all the culinary fruits. Watermelon is in the Cucurbitaceae family. The genus is Citrullus and the species is C. lanatus.

Watermelons do not ripen after harvest. They need warm weather to grow because they are tropical plants.

Watermelon seeds were found in one of the ancient Pharoah's tombs, so we know watermelons were grown thousands of years ago on the Nile River.

Watermelons are harvested in summer and they are grown all over the United States, even in my own backyard!

    Watermelon at its peak of ripeness is one of my favorite fruits, too! I like pretty much all fruits. It's nice that they come into season at different times of the year so there is always something at its peak of ripeness!

    God made such a beautiful world full of yummy foods that are good for our bodies. It's a shame we put candy and bad things into our bodies when there is such an abundance of wonderful, nutritious goodies like watermelon! Just my thoughts… 🙂
